In this lecture, we will explore the origins and functions of religion and morality using insights garnered from sociology, evolutionary science, and philosophy. The literary refractions of these questions in the works of Dostoyevsky, Butler, Ferdowsi, and Obeyd of Zakan will also be discussed.
In this event the IIS pays tribute to Prof. Wilferd Madelung (1930-2023) and honours his life and contribution to Islamic Studies in general and Ismaili Studies in particular. Scholars from around the globe, both in person and online, will present their testimonials and discuss Prof. Madelung’s legacy.
