This week’s presenterMr. Ian Kluge

This week presenter

Ian Kluge is an independent philosophy scholar who specializes in developing a philosophic approach to the Baha'i Writings and contemporary social issues. He has published numerous papers in various journals and texts on this subject. He presents his ideas at and on the Baha'i Philosophy Channel on Youtube. He and his wife Kirsti live in Abbotsford, B.C. Canada.

This week’s topicAn In-depth multiple series Analysis of Contemporary "Woke," politics.

My talks are presented as an alternative understanding that might be worth thinking about vis-à-vis the Writings and the wokist methods and goals. I am presenting an alternative understanding and am not interested in challenging anyone or 'proving' anyone 'wrong.' The purpose is two-fold: (1) to demonstrate the conflicts between contemporary 'woke-ism' and the Baha'i Writings and (2) to show how the Baha'i Writings offer better intellectual and practical alternatives to work for social justice goals in today's world. As part of my presentation, I shall show how 'woke-ism' creates more problems than it supposedly solves and, thereby, does not provide a positive platform for social, intellectual, and spiritual change.
