AUB Runs Arabic and Islamic Science and Philosophy Center

Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 11:22

American University of Beirut has run a center for Arabic and Islamic Science and Philosophy on November 26, 2018.

According to AUB official website, the Farouk Jabre Center for Arabic and Islamic Science and Philosophy is an academic body that focuses on the study of the history of Arabic science and philosophy as it was known through the last millennium-and-a-half, for the purpose of finding inspiration in the civilization's successes.

This center aims to erase any misconceptions and stigmas related to understanding this history through reconsidering foundational sources of that culture. It also intends to build a new vision that overturns the myth that Arabic language, and thus the Arabic culture, is unconducive to scientific writing and advances, by proving that the language is simply a tool of a thinking mind and highlighting that several sciences were, in fact, effortlessly articulated in Arabic throughout history.

In order to achieve its mission, the center will be organizing and hosting colloquia, symposia, lectures, and discussion groups as well as teaching courses, rejuvenating students' interest, and encouraging different AUB departments to teach courses that engage with and support the center's message.
