Gathering on the concept of doubt.

On 12 July, the fourth of eight public circle gathering around 'doubt' will take place. In this circle get-together with Ben Dragstra, who works at the Salvation Army, we will discuss through various reflections the role of doubt in society our personal existence and the neighbourhood we live in.

For this gathering, we have invited PhD student Kamel Essabane to talk about his insights into different forms of doubt and the role doubt plays in his life. As a child, he was already confronted with the diversity and huge contradictions in his living environment, which made him think and doubt at an early age. From this followed a quest that, using philosophers from Europe and the Islamic world, brought him insights into different forms of doubt. Based on Essabane's contribution, we will then discuss doubt.
