Dr. Hashash will outline some major features of contemporary scholarly discussions regarding the place of ethics in Islamic thinking and intellectual revival. By focalizing the Arab-Islamic world, his talk draws a distinction between the trend that wishes to individualise ethics and focalize the moral dimensions in the tradition, and the trend that wishes to remain communal and universal. Dr. Hashash will underline the difficulty and complexity of the issue, while recognizing global connections among Muslim communities and worldviews.
