Public Lecture on 'Islam and Science’

Why is science so conspicuously absent from Muslim Societies today ?
This important pertinent question is the focus of a public lecture by Professor Ziauddin Sardar on 'Islam and Science: Beyond the Troubled Relationship', scheduled on Tues, 12 December 2006 at 6:30 PM at the Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW 1Y 5AG.
The lecture is supported by The John Templeton Foundation. Admission is free; no tickets or advance booking.
Since the Qur’an and the traditions of Prophet Mohammad place great importance on science, Prof. Sardar argues that science belongs at the very heart of Islamic culture and the survival of Muslim civilization itself is intrinsically linked to its troubled relationship with Science.
Royal Society events are frequently broadcast on the web.
