  • Auditorium, College of Islamic Studies, Education City

About Event

This lecture discusses how, in the past, the Islamic sciences were associated with a “Golden Age” of glory and relative progression. By contrast, the field has recently witnessed narrative decline, with claims of Islam being culturally incompatible with rationality.

The lecture will seek to present research-based results and conclusions on this topic.

Speaker:

Dr. Jamil Ragep, Canada Research Chair in the History of Science in Islamic Societies, Institute of Islamic Studies, McGill University


The lecture will be conducted in English. Interpretation will be available.
