Psychology and Islam

LUMS Religious society in collaboration with Psychology society, presents:

Islam and Psychology by Uzma Mazhar

Al-Ghazali in his study of the soul introduces two kinds of psyche or essences: one deals with the animal and humane forces of the soul (the incentive and the perceptive).

In the second kind of psyche, however, Al-Ghazali deals with the exercise of the soul, the discipline of morals, and the cure of bad manners. In this respect, Al-Ghazali is totally creative and inventive, hardly imitating any of his preceding philosophers. In this area, he introduced new effective means to modify human behavior and rectify its defects, thus preceding modern psychologists and behavioral therapists in this respect.
