Podcast: Start-Up Nation for the Humanities

(June 13, 2016)

The 11th century Islamic modernist who preceded modernity.

Aram Abu Saleh, a student at Jerusalem's Israel Arts and Science Academy, is the recipient of the Van Leer award for outstanding essays written by high school students. He talks to host Gilad Halpern about Abul 'Alaa al Ma'ari, a maverick 11th century Islamic theologian and poet, whose unconventional views remain hated and admired in equal measure.
