Saturday, September 8th: Keynote Lecture & Benefit Dinner
Sunday, September 9th: Multidisciplinary Symposium on Islam & Biomedicine
Monday, September 10th: Workshop on the Ethics of Organ Donation
The core challenges for the Islamic tradition as it engages the human sciences emerge from competing ontological visions, epistemic frameworks, and theologies of life and living. By bringing together theologians, medical practitioners and intellectual historians, this symposium will engage with the question of integration: how might scientific knowledge inform, and work with, the various Muslim theologies on the nature of being and life.
