About this course
The course provides an in-depth conceptual analysis of Atheism and various Islamic theological perspectives. It aims to shed intelligible light on how various Islamic perspectives (from a range of different disciplines) overcome the conceptual issues presented by atheism. The course shall offer an extensive variety of outlooks that hope to explicate the profound nature of atheistic and humanistic polemics against the Islamic tradition. More importantly, it shall explore a wide range of theoretical responses that attempt to set the foundations for (theological) narratives in addressing such issues.
