Istanbul Symposium Discussing Muslim-Christian Scholars’ Works on Philosophy, Theology

Istanbul’s Ibn Haldun University has brought together Muslim and Christian scholars in a symposium titled Muslim-Christian Scholars’ Works on Philosophy and Theology.

According to rahyafte (the missionaries and converts website)

Located in the historical Suleymaniye district of Istanbul, the university is organizing the symposium on March 9-12, 2020. In the symposium, Muslim and Christian scholars discuss and share their current researches from a philosophical and theological perspective.

Professors Kelly James Clark, Burhan Koroglu and Enis Doko chair the symposium in which workshops on philosophy and science will also be organized.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Doko said academics from various universities will discuss relations between theology, science and philosophy.

“Together with scholars from Turkey, the US and Malaysia, we will have the opportunity to discuss religion and science from both Muslim and Christian perspectives,” he said.

Doko added that one of the main purposes of the symposium is to increase collaboration between Muslim and Christian academics, and they want to work together both in academic and cultural works.

The symposium is in English and it is open for participation to academics, students and enthusiasts of the subjects.

In the first session of the symposium, Prof. Kelly James Clark gave a speech titled Religion and Violence: This is Why We Fight, pointing to the fact that philosophy and social sciences are closely related.

“The way to solve our disagreements is dialogue. We should focus on our prejudices. Neither all Muslims nor all Christians in the world have the same way of thinking,” Clark said.
