This is a compilation of the Turkish scholar Fethulleh Gulan’s essays. Gulan is an incredibly influential man and his ideas are the guiding light behind a movement for peace, education and social justice – the Gulan Movement.
This collection contains essays on the nature of humanity and civilisation, religion, service and education, as well as a set of essays on the nature of Islam. I’ve only vaguely heard of Gulan and I can’t say I agree with him on certain subjects, but the essays are well argued comments on a variety of subjects. They are certainly a good introduction to a wider audience of Gulan’s thoughts and the background to the movement that is named for him.
An interesting read.
