In a world where conflicting faiths divide societies, often violently, the inevitable question arises: Can faiths harmoniously coexist? If so, which worldview best promotes this coexistence and encourages members of diverse faith communities to engage in meaningful discussion with one another? Is there a place for faith in such a worldview, or must tolerant worldviews be secular and free from faith? Can any worldview, including a secular one, be truly neutral?
Akeel Bilgrami will argue that a secular humanist worldview provides the best solution to the problem of conflict between differing faiths. Vinoth Ramachandra will address the challenges of pluralism from Christian perspective. A moderated discussion by Dr. David Eisenbach with audience Q&A will follow the opening presentations.
