The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE) is to host a seminar, ‘Today’s Ethics between Theory and Practice’, with participation from the renowned French philosopher and sociologist Edgar Morin on 29 October 2013 at Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) at 7 pm.
Dr Tariq Ramadan, CILE’s Executive Director, will discuss with his prestigious guest some of the most important ethical challenges of the contemporary world. Morin, who developed the theory of ‘complexity’ and strategy of complex thought, is a leading theorist of the Trans-disciplinary approach.
This seminar is part of a series of public events that CILE will hold throughout the academic year, focusing on various disciplines including economics, politics, arts, media, environment, bioethics, psychology, methodology, and gender studies. By organising and hosting such events, the center seeks to deepen discussion in certain contemporary issues and provide ethical approaches and solutions.
Created in 2012 as a center specialising in Islamic legislation and ethical thought with a focus on applied ethics, CILE aims to contribute to reform and renewal of Islamic thought by developing a contemporary vision guided by the fundamental principles of the Holy Qur’an, Sunnah and the higher objectives of Islamic Shariah.
