The Children of Adam: Islam and Pluralism within the Society and the World
Dr. Fathi OsmanTime: 1 hour 5 minutes 50 seconds
What is the difference between tolerance and pluralism? Dr. Osman defines pluralism in religious terms and how we can achieve pluralism in global and local societies. How do we retain our identity and culture while promoting pluralism? Dr. Osman specifically examines the United States with its many ethnicities and the opportunities that are available.
Dr. Osman examines the role of religion in our fast paced changing society. Does religion have to compete with science and how does religion work with the government? He compares progressive Muslim thinkers (those who adapt to change) to historical Muslim thinkers (those who restrict their beliefs to the past) and the danger of terrorism and extremist ideology.
