This blog began in late February 2018 as an attempt to share varied perspectives on modern society through the lenses of Islamic theology, Eastern and Western philosophy, and historical reflections. Our contributors vary in age and come from diverse academic, ethnic, and national backgrounds. We hope you find our short reflections thought-provoking and illuminating!
