Neoplatonism and Sufism (Online)
Two Tuesdays, May 7 - 14
6 - 7:30pm CT
Compare two realms of thought that place a strong emphasis on the individual's inner spiritual journey and the attainment of self-knowledge.
Neoplatonism is a philosophical system that developed in the 3rd century AD, which emphasizes the concept of the One – an unseen but ever-present ultimate reality – as the source of all being and the ultimate goal of human experience. Sufism is considered a mystical Islamic belief system that emphasizes the inward search for God and the personal experience of spiritual truth. Both Sufism and Neoplatonism place a strong emphasis on the individual's inner spiritual journey and the attainment of self-knowledge. Join us for this introduction to these realms of thought, explore the key philosophical concepts important to both, and the meaningful differences between these two paths.
