[Update: Video] Lecture "Islamic Ethics and the Trusteeship Paradigm: Interdisciplinary Explorations"

The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), a member of College of Islamic Studies (CIS) in Hamad Bin Khalifa University, cordially invites you to the upcoming public lecture titled:

Islamic Ethics and the Trusteeship Paradigm: Interdisciplinary Explorations

It will be held on October 15th, 2018 from 7 to 9 pm in the Auditorium at the College of Islamic Studies building.

In this lecture, our panel of speakers will discuss the “Trusteeship-based Critique” (al-naqd al-i´timānī), which aims at re-grounding Arab-Islamic philosophy on the ethical message that the Moroccan philosopher Ṭāhā ‘Abdurraḥmān considers central and dominant in the Islamic worldview.

The gist of this paradigm is that the essence of being human is practical ethics - not abstract reason. Through a series of works from the 1970s, ‘Abdurraḥmān proposes Trusteeship as an innovative epistemological paradigm that can rehabilitate Islamic scholarship and critically engage with modernity for innovative approaches to other disciplines in the social and exact sciences (e.g. politics, education, environment, media, medicine, psychology, etc.).
