Authenticities of the “self” had been studied from several perspectives. In this paper, the “authentic self” was examined from transcendental perspective. The concept of authentic self is a focal point and a buzz word in recent studies. With the swing on moral and ethical dilemma within the society, it has reached a height that the phrase “authentic self, society, leaders, schools, community” is now been studied. The contemporary global trend of the dichotomy between the authenticity of the private and public of a “self” was reviewed. This paper will consider the Islamic purview of the “self.” The union of the private and the public dimensions of the self were evaluated using the indicators such as the “self” in relation to God; relationship with the Scriptures; principles of social justice and understanding of the world. The role of education as a vibrant catalyst in making an “authentic self” was finally correlated to expose its effect as a tool for societal change.
