Faculty Work-in-Progress: The Modernization of Knowledge

Tue., April 25th, 2017, 4:30 pm-5:30 pm Clark Hall 206

In his talk, Chris Haufe, Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy, compares the individual and community-level practices that have contributed to the growth of scientific knowledge with those that were historically important to the growth of Islamic law and legal theory. This comparison is composed of two independent lines of inquiry. The first looks at the major features that played a role in the historical development of each knowledge tradition. The second line of inquiry compares structural features of knowledge practices across the two traditions.

Pre-lecture reception begins at 4:15 pm.

Free and open to the public.  Registration recommended.
