The final event in this lecture series features Dr. Marek Steedman, who will present, Pre-Modern Islamic Political Thought.  Islamic thought is often seen as hostile to the West, or even reason itself.  This lecture examines centuries of influence and connection among Islamic, Jewish, and Christian political thinkers.  All three traditions wrestled with a common heritage of Greek political categories.  The lecture explores the Islamic response to this challenge.  

This series is part of an initiative, Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and is a collaboration between the Department of Philosophy and Religion and University Libraries.

The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf series provides an opportunity to enhance the library print and film collections and online resources with a balanced collection of core titles about important areas of the Muslim cultures.
