By bringing together an international cohort of academicians, clinicians, and Islamic seminarians, this symposium and workshop aims to fill a major lacuna within academic discourse on the scholastic traditions of Islam and the human sciences. The symposium, sponsored by the Templeton Foundation and co-organized in collaboration with the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, will focus on the relationships between Islamic theology and metaphysics in addition to how theological and metaphysical constructs within Islam interfere with the science and practice of medicine.
