I’ve just come across a very thoughtful blog produced by a young returned missionary, and I want to mention it here for those who might be interested:
The title of the blog strikes me in particular, I suppose, because one of my favorite books in the Islamic philosophical tradition — in certain ways, but by no means all, something of an Islamized version of Plato’s Republic (another favorite of mine) — is al-Farabi’s The Virtuous City. And because I’ve always had a strong interest in the notion of “utopia” and the social order of the Millennium. Not that that’s what Tom Stringham’s blog is necessarily about . . .
