This event starts in:
In this presentation, Jared Morningstar will explore some of the lesser-known potentialities and actualities of the religion of Islam. He will explore three unique features of the faith tradition: its proclivity for diverse expressions and ability to synthesize multiple value-memes in a cohesive framework; its cosmopolitan orientation which has brought myriad philosophical and spiritual material together; and its endogenous theology of religions and spirituality which provides resources for a non-relativistic but deeply integrated pluralism in this domain. Through these explorations, Jared will try to shed light on some lesser-known ideas and spiritual orientations which could serve to augment, qualify, or transform perspectives in the Integral community which have historically remained under-exposed to Islamic traditions.
