Challenges Facing Human Society: “Some Answered Questions”

Centers of knowledge and leaders of thought are searching for solutions for an increasing number of problems threatening our individual and collective well-being. A hundred years ago ‘Abdu’l-Baha elucidated a series of solutions to many of the problems we are facing today. The Irfan Colloquium in 2009 is continuing its 2008 program to present and discuss the principles and explanations embodied in ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s “Some Answered Questions” as well as other Baha’i Writings. The Colloquium’s program also includes presentation of systematic Baha’i studies in fundamental principles of the Baha’i beliefs, Writings of the Central Figures of the Baha’i Faith, and the interface of the Baha’i Faith with current intellectual and religious trends.

Irfan Colloquium takes place in an informal and collegiate atmosphere and provides a unique opportunity to meet and associate with those interested in systematic Baha’i studies. Presenters this year include Dr. Shapour Rassekh, Dr. Vahid Rafati and Dr. Iraj Ayman for the Persian programme and Dr. Stephen Lambden, Dr. Sholeh Quinn, Dr. Amin Egea, Dr. Armin Eschraghi, Dr. Julip Savi and Dr. Moojan Momen for the English programme.

Participants receive a free copy of The Lights of Irfan and a booklet of abstracts. Information on Irfan Colloquium and the details of the program are posted in: http://www.irfancolloquia.org
