Recent research in the philosophy of religion, anthropology, and philosophy of mind has prompted the need for a more integrated, comprehensive, and systematic theology of human nature. This project constructively develops a theological accounting of human persons by drawing from a Cartesian (as a term of art) model of anthropology, which is motivated by a long tradition. As was common among patristics, medievals, and Reformed Scholastics, Farris draws from philosophical resources to articulate Christian doctrine as he approaches theological anthropology. Exploring a substance dualism model, the author highlights relevant theological texts and passages of Scripture, arguing that this model accounts for doctrinal essentials concerning theological anthropology. While Farris is not explicitly interested in thorough critique of materialist ontology, he notes some of the significant problems associated with it. Rather, the present project is an attempt to revitalize the resources found in Cartesianism by responding to some common worries associated with it.

Divinity or Supreme Consciousness or God exists but cannot be seen with our bodily eyes. To experience the Divinity, one needs to have ‘Drishti’, The Divine Vision. For the blessed few, the Vision exists by the grace of the Almighty. The rest have to gain the Vision with spiritual pursuits including prayers, meditation and encompassing spiritual wisdom. My offering to you in the form of Drishti – An Insight for Soul Enrichment will be a transformational journey from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge and wisdom. This book will guide you to live a life of awareness and thankfulness, develop a positive attitude and enable you to take small and pertinent steps towards a ‘better self’. The journey through this book will stimulate your thoughts, allowing you to live a more fulfilling life, the way it is meant to be lived. Life is, after all, a journey within.
