About The Event

3rd Annual Islamic Philosophy Conference of the American Society of Islamic Philosophy & Theology

Call for Papers

Date: December 3-5, 2021

Venue: Harvard University’s campus and Zoom

Abstract Submission Deadline: October 25, 2021

Registration Deadline: November 30, 2021

The aim of the conference is to promote the study of Islamic Philosophy, broadly conceived, in its historical and contemporary context.

The third conference in the series will cover the Islamic Rational Sciences and the Tools of Knowledge (logic, rhetoric, debate, etymology, etc.) as both are tools in the service of sacred knowledge as well as the often-overlooked domain of sustained philosophical inquiry since the 13th century CE. Here the focus will be on questions that arise primarily from within the Islamic tradition and the rationalist responses via the practice of taḥqīq (verification). However, panels consisting of ASIP&T working group members will also address broader and more universal questions, especially those that investigate the limits of what is knowable.

The fourth conference (2022) will build on the previous two and address metaphysical and abstract matters, such as questions of human spiritual anthropology and advances in brain imaging (the soul and consciousness), the nature of the physical and metaphysical worlds (quantum physics and Qur’anic worldview), and comparative theism/theology, etc.
