KRM Supports Cutting Edge Research on Islamic Analytic Theology

In collaboration with the John Templeton Foundation and other institutional partners, Kalam Research & Media is supporting the research and drafting of over 40 volumes that both aim to offer either serious understanding of aspects of the rich tradition of analytic thought in the Islamic tradition in a contemporary context, or meticulous analytic approaches to the contemporary world. These volumes serve as attempts to represent an understudied and misunderstood field of scholarship in a contemporary context, seeking to draw new insights from renewed scholarly interest.
