About this course

“… Before partaking in the course I was weary of studying philosophy since I have heard negative feedback on it…However, Alhamdulillah through the guidance of amazing and inspirational teachers I was able to appreciate works of philosophy and can now clearly see the foundation of ideas and how philosophical arguments regarding epistemology and even the metaphysics arose.”

The Western Intellectual Tradition

Are you taking a course on philosophy? Are you confused about your faith? Do you want to learn the Islamic perspective on Western philosophical ideas?

 

This course will introduce you to the essential ideas, thinkers, terminologies, texts, methodologies and debates within the Western intellectual tradition – philosophy, theology, history, polity. Furthermore, students will develop practical skills through aspects of the trivium – thinking correctly (logic), writing well (grammar), speaking persuasively (rhetoric).

 

Where possible a comparative approach between the Islamic and the Western intellectual traditions will be elaborated.

 

This program will deal with the theism-atheism debate on theological problems, for instance, the arguments for the existence of god, divine attribute paradoxes, problem of evil, morality, science vs religion, religious truth, epistemology, along with questions related to tradition, modernity, postmodernity, relativism, feminism, gender fluidity, science (evolution, AI), ethics (sexual and biomedical), psychology, societal norms and political science.
