Hollister, CA, October 21, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- This series of lectures covers five ancient philosophical traditions, the Epic of Gilgamesh, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism, focusing on the following questions:
• What is the relationship between religion and philosophy?
• What social and psychological functions do religions serve?
• What does it mean to be educated?
Professor Sabzevary’s intellectual nuance is matched only by his clarity, not only into perennial philosophical questions but also the modern condition. Far from leaving abstract concepts in the lofty confines of tradition, Professor Sabzevary speaks religious languages with a modern tongue, placing ancient philosophies within the practical and emotional difficulties of modern life. This applicability does not sacrifice profundity, as these dialogues move in a depth that taps into the wellspring from which all religious philosophies draw their substance.
An intellectual journey into the heart of religious philosophy.
