Symposium “The work of Mohammed Iqbal, a proposal for human achievement”, within the framework of World Philosophy Day 2010
Poster for the International Celebration of World Philosophy Day 2010 at UNESCO
This meeting will be devoted to the thought of Muhammad Iqbal, and will be jointly organized by UNESCO and the journals "Esprit" and "Philosophie Magazine"
What is the relevance of Mohammed Iqbal’s philosophical thought today? The work of the Indian subcontinent’s most renowned twentieth-century Muslim poet and philosopher is particularly valuable to us today owing, above all, to its outstandingly unique humanism. By undertaking a permanent dialogue between the Islamic and the Western thought, Iqbal places human dignity at such a level of sublimity and sacredness, that its meaning finds a new foundation and future therein. What could be more necessary than such thoughts at the beginning of the twenty-first century when the legacies of civilizations meet and feed each other, no longer rivals but rather friends in dialogue?
