The annual GRIPh Lecture is organised by the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen, in cooperation with Studium Generale Groningen. This years lecture, on September 19 in the Acadamy Building, is about Philosophy in the Islamic World.
In the history of philosophy, few topics are so relevant to today's cultural and political landscape as philosophy in the Islamic world. Yet, this remains one of the lesser known philosophical traditions. Professor of Philosophy Peter Adamson explores the history of philosophy among Muslims, Jews, and Christians living in Islamic lands, from its historical background to thinkers in the twentieth century. The language is English.
