Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Universities should allow students opportunities to expound divine philosophies along with natural sciences

Mahmud's Diary
August 31, 1912

When He saw some of the college buildings, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá said:

As only material education is imparted and only natural philosophy is taught, these universities do not produce highly talented scholars. When both the natural and the divine philosophies are expounded, they will bring forth outstanding souls and evince great advancement. The reason for the success of the Greek schools was that they combined both natural and divine philosophies.
