Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
In this episode, Nathan Mech program outreach project manager here at the Acton Institute sits down with Mustafa Akyol senior fellow at the Cato Institute to discuss his new book, Reopening Muslim Minds: A Return to Reason, Freedom, and Tolerance.
In his book, Akyol dives deep into Islamic theology, shares lessons from his own life story, and reveals how Muslims lost the universalism that made them a great civilization in their earlier centuries.
Values often associated with Western thought like freedom, reason, tolerance, and science were historically part of Islamic philosophy but in recent generations have been cast aside to reach political ends.
