16-20 November (upcoming)
Invited plenary speaker at 2nd International Congress on Islamic Humanities, organized by Center for Cultural and Social Research, Iran.
Title of Plenary Talk: “An Islamic Approach to Humanities.”
Abstract: The methodology of science is suitable for material substances subject to laws, but not for humans with free will. “Social science” was born from the misconception that application of the scientific method to human beings and societies would lead to remarkable progress. However, this approach has failed in many different ways, documented below. Islam provides us with a radically different approach to the study of human beings and societies, predicated on human freedom to choose between good and evil. This approach is delineated below.
