This weekend course will explore the traditional basis of Islamic ethics and how we might apply some of the key elements of this understanding when considering how to approach ethical issues relevant today. Lecture content will cover the theoretical framework (basic terminology, essential concepts and an introduction to theological philosophy and its relationship with ethics from an Islamic perspective) and through case studies will look at how this is applied in practice. Critical discussion and engagement from course participants will be encouraged.
