Written by Simon Robinson, The Spirituality of Responsibility shows how Fethullah Gülen, a Turkish preacher and founder of the Gülen movement, was influenced by both orthodox Islam and the Sufi tradition, contribute a dynamic, holistic and interactive view of responsibility which locates personal identity, agency and freedom in plural relationships.

It also explores the practice of responsibility in Gülen’s life and in the Hizmet movement which he founded. Gülen has been at the centre of many controversies, including in his Movement’s relationship with the Turkish government. The book has been published by Bloomsbury publishers.

There will be a discussion at the launch chaired by Dr Simon Jones, Dean of the Guildhall School of Business and Law. Professor Simon Robinson will sit on the panel accompanied with Dr Minlib Dallh, Research Fellow for the Study of Love in Religion at Regent’s Park College, Oxford.
