Abstract:

Are most human societies moving toward a point at which they can accommodate wide disparities in personal belief and culture? Will fundamental disagreement and mutual respect ever reach an equilibrium, and what challenges do the world's manifold religions present in that regard? This program features scholars and authors who offer strategies for bridging cultural differences and abandoning an "us vs. them" social mindset. Interviewees include the liberal Islamic theologian Nasr Abu Zayd, appearing here shortly before his death in 2010; Zainab Al-Suwaiji, co-founder and executive director of the American Islamic Congress as well as a native of Iraq, where she took part in a 1991 uprising against Saddam Hussein; Jonathan Sacks, chief rabbi of Great Britain's United Hebrew Congregations; and others.
