Despite the contemporary discipline of psychology being only a little over hundred years old, Islamic scholars have been discussing human psychology for over a millennium.
This lecture will explore some of the discussions of human psychology found within the classical Islamic scholarly heritage. It will have a particular focus on how contemporary Muslim scholars have attempted to bring this tradition into conversation with modern psychology. In this lecture, such contemporary work will be examined with a focus on both the strengths and limitations as well as the opportunities that should inform the next steps for the development of this nascent subfield of psychology.
Speakers: Dr. Hooman Keshavarzi, Executive Director, Khalil Institute Dr. Khalid Elzamzamy, Psychiatry Fellow, Institute of Living, Connecticut, USA
The lecture will be held in English.Click here to register
