Mohammed Bamyeh on Lifeworlds of Islam: The Pragmatics of a Religion

Thursday, January 28, 2021 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm
online
Sponsored By: 
Humanities Center, University of Pittsburgh

Dr. Mohammed Bamyeh, Professor of Sociology, University of Pittsburgh will present on his book Lifeworlds of Islam: The Pragmatics of a Religion.

How do ancient ideas continue to appear relevant in a modern world? In Lifeworlds of Islam: The Pragmatics of a Religion (Oxford UP, 2019), Mohammad Bamyeh shows that Islam has lived on not because of any standard dogmas, but because it served as a compass for practical individual orientations or “lifeworlds.” The text maps out how Muslims have employed the faith to foster global networks, public philosophies, and engaged civic lives.
