Islamic philosophers to be reviewed

The two-day Avicenna and Islamic Philosophers conference will be held by Sadra Islamic Wisdom Foundation.



In an interview with IBNA, scientific secretary of the foundation, Ghasem Purhassan, said the event is arranged to be held for two days beginning on Tuesday, October 18, 2011.


The conference is being held in line with Farabi conferences which were previously arranged by the foundation. Islamic philosophers after Farabi until the year of 550 hg. will be considered in the conference, he added.


"From Farabi to Avicenna", "Avicenna" and "from Avicenna to Sohrevardi" are the three parts of the conference, Purhassan said. Mysticism, Sufism and philosophy will be discussed in the gathering.


He went on to say that so far 65 research abstracts have been submitted to the secretariat of the conference that will accept works until September 22.


Gholamhussein Ebrahimi Dinani, Reza Davari Ardakani, Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Khamenei, Yahya Yasrebi, Gholamreza Avani and Hujatoleslam Mostafa Mohaghegh Damad are the keynote speakers of the conference, he further added.


Slated to be held on October 18 and 19, the Avicenna and Islamic Philosophers conference will be held in one of the conference halls of the labor ministry.
