Islam, Science and Scientism

29th October 2012, 17:15 to 19:00, Senate Room, Durham Castle, Prof Alparslan Acikgenc

Risale-i-Nur Speaker Series Seminar

Prof Acikgenc will offer insights into

  • How the Quran and Islam view the universe;
  • How science in the true Muslim tradition has come to mean ‘reading’ the world in accordance with the ‘Other-indicative’ (ma’na-i harfi) approach rather than the ‘self-referential’ (ma’na-i ismi) ap-proach
  • How the Quranic approach differs from that of scientism
