International Conference on Shaikh al-Ishraq and the modern world

The Institute of Suhrawardi’s Wisdom in collaboration with some academic centers organizes an international conference to reread the thoughts of Shaikh al-Ishraq. Rereading Suhrawardi’s thoughts is of great importance for the new generation who live in a different world from Suhrawardi’s time. There is no need to say that in this rereading, due to the critical nature of the modern world, there may be some criticisms of those ideas. This international conference, which will be held in person and online in March 2023, originates from the view that original premodern intellectual traditions can be the source of insight and inspiration for the contemporary human being in solving his/her complicated problems.
