Natural Law: Jewish, Christian and Muslim Views

April 14, 2016


3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

What is the role of reason in religion? To what extent do religious traditions speak to all humanity? One locus for examining these questions, in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is what the three traditions call "natural law." In their book, Natural Law: A Jewish, Christian and Muslim Trialogue, Anver Emon, Matthew Levering, and David Novak explored the varying roles of natural law in their respective traditions, bringing out its importance to doctrines of legal responsibility, authority and knowledge. In their panel at UIC, they will extend the conversation of their book and open it up for a wide-ranging discussion with the audience.
