There is a certain thread by which we can unify western thought, and that thread has a lot to do with the Promethean Human or the Titanic Human

Technology and Science are at the pinnacle of Western Secular thought. How does the emphasis on technology affect Western outlooks and attitudes about God, Nature, and human beings? How has western philosophical thought engaged with questions about ‘individualism,’ ‘power,’ and other concepts that shape our interactions and thoughts?
In this fascinating, Lamppost exclusive video, Ustadh Abu Sakina Giovanni explores some of the common elements in Western secular thought that emphasize technology above everything, including belief in Allah.
