John Cobb & Friends Gathering: Ahmed Afzaal
August 30, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm PDT
Topic: Teaching at Twilight – The Meaning of Education in the Age of Collapse
Presenter(s): Ahmed Afzaal
Dr. Ahmed Afzaal, Associate Professor of Religion, Concordia College in Minnesota, will be discussing his soon to be published book, expressing his concern about the values taught in our institutions of higher education. A native of Pakistan, his approach to a process-relational way of thinking comes through his encounter with the thinking of Iqbal. He comes to us highly recommended by Marcus Ford, who is engaged in an innovative model of higher education at Flagstaff College in Arizona. See Dr. Afzaal’s curriculum vitae here, and also his article that caught the attention of Marcus Ford, “Education in a Time of Collapse.” To see his website and find him through social media, go here.
