Death of Expertise Class 2 (MCC Series)


In this class Imam Mikaeel Ahmed holds a discussion on the campaign against established knowledge, scholarship and academia. He attempts to bring to the fore front of Muslim discourse the current wave of anti-intellectualism and the rise of the hobbyist scholar and public intellectuals. In this class he highlights key factors for identifying scholarship along with some reasons why intellectuals and experts are often misunderstood such as social insecurity, confirmation bias, stereotypes vs generalizations and the Dunning-Kruger effect.
