Contrary

Materialism

“… materialism amounts to reducing man to the animal, and even to the lowest, since the lowest is the most collective; this explains the materialists’ hatred for all that is supra-terrestrial, transcendent, spiritual, for it is precisely the spiritual by which man is not an animal. To deny the spiritual is to deny the human: the moral and legal distinction between man and animal then becomes purely arbitrary, like any other tyranny…”

— F. Schuon
