The foundation announced that The Research Center for Islamic Philosophy and Theology affiliated to Islamic Sciences and Culture Academy (ISCA) plans to organize the international event.
Given that the International Conference of Religious Doctrines and the Mind-Body Problem was successfully held by the center in March 2010, the second International Conference will, as part of the giant project of “Mind-Body Relationship”, be held under the theme of “the Immortality of the soul in Islam and Christianity” in March 2020.
The concept of death, the concept of immortality, the criteria of personal identity, postmortem survival and life after death are the five main themes of the conference.
Papers should not exceed 8000 words and can be in English, Arabic or Persian. Deadline for abstracts is March 16, 2019 and papers should be submitted by September 16, 2019.
ISCA was established in 1994 with the aim of explaining Islamic theoretical doctrines on the basis of reason and revelation, reviving (Islamic) philosophical and theological heritage and addressing intellectual challenges.
