Dr. Shahid Siddiqi, The Pursuit of Knowledge in a Globalizing World: An Islamic Perspective.
This presentation attempts to analyze the ‘Muslim Journeys’ linkage between the classical-medieval-modern period. It aims to identify the core values from an Islamic perspective, which may drive the knowledge enterprise in spirit, form, and dynamics. The talk is concerned with the sustainability of humanity in a pluralistic, global civilization.
This event is free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by the LIU Post Library and partners, and supported by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities. For further information call IMC, Library at 516-299-2895
