In "The Quest for Meaning: Developing a Philosophy of Pluralism", Tariq Ramadan embarks on a journey to uncover the profound truths that bind us together. In a world so full of different beliefs and viewpoints, how can we find peace in our shared humanity? Acclaimed thinker and philosopher Tariq Ramadan explores universal ideas such as love, respect, truth and tolerance, and examines questions such as how can men and women relate to each other? What is the true nature of equality? What does 'civilization' really mean? In doing so, he opens our minds to a new view of humanity. Whether we are Christian or Buddhist, Jewish or Muslim, secularist or believer, he reveals that all traditions of thought spring from the same place, and guides us to see past what divides us and discover the beauty of what we have in common. This book has resonance for all of us, showing why, eventually, all different spiritual paths lead to the human heart. "A prophetic, passionate and insightful book". (Karen Armstrong, "Financial Times"). Tariq Ramadan is Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at the Faculty of Oriental Studies and St Antony's College (University of Oxford).
He is the Director of the Centre for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (Doha). He is the author of "The Quest for Meaning" and "The Messenger", and has been described as one of the 'most important innovators for the twenty-first century' by "Time" magazine.
