In a very real, practical and meaningful sense, values are the “pillars of civilization”
Date: 5th November 2016
Time: 4.45pm – 7pm
*Free entry – no booking required
*Men and women are welcome.
Join us for a talk and discussion led by Sohaib Hassan on nobility and character in various world traditions – Samurai, Ottoman, West European, Persian and Arab.
By visiting connections between cultures we see how ‘adab’ – or ‘conduct’ is connected with the primordial nature of man.
There will also be a chaired discussion – where the focus is on developing insights and wisdom rather than only knowledge.
– How can we nurture men of character?
– Building institutions for cultural exposition in the Information Age.
– Can codes be updated for practical activities in the modern world?
Evolved conduct is something usually learned from a highly developed “system” of social ethics, moral values, religious virtues, and public manners.
