Workshop on Muslim Philosophy

The Muslim philosophical tradition which has had a twelve-century-long history and is still alive today, like all other Islamic science, is deeply rooted in the Qur’an and Prophetic Sunnah. Muslim Philosophy  is Islamic not only by virtue of the fact that it was cultivated by Muslims but because it derives its principles, inspiration and many of the questions with which it has been concerned from the sources of Islamic revelation despite the claims of its opponents to the contrary.

COMPASS intends to invite students’ attention to the rich philosophical tradition of Muslims and analyse its content and understand the role it has played in Muslim tradition. For this purpose COMPASS is organizing  two days workshop on Muslim Philosophy.
