Bahaddin Zakariaya University (BZU) teacher Riffat Iqbal was honoured to obtain Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree from the University of Karachi.
Dr Riffat Iqbal, an Assistant Professor at Department of Philosophy BZU, completed her doctorate degree recently.
Her doctoral dissertation was on ‘Alasdair Maclntyre’s Ethical Thought’. In alliance with Maclntyre, Dr Riffat strongly believed that philosophy had vital role in society and people should pursue rationality to address their issues.
In this respect, Dr Riffat successfully applied the concept of “Self” given by British-American philosopher Alasdair Maclntyre in his widely acclaimed work “After Virtue” to the issue of identity crisis in Pakistan.
Currently, Dr Riffat is working on political thought of Maclntyre and its application on political problems of Pakistan.—APP
