Frank Griffel PhD

Frank studied philosophy, Arabic literature, and Islamic studies at universities in Göttingen (Germany), Damascus, Berlin, and London. He received his PhD in 1999 from the Free University in Berlin. In his thesis he researched the development of the judgment of apostasy in classical Islam.  After a short period as a research fellow at the Orient Institute of the German Oriental Society in Beirut, Lebanon, he came in 2000 to Yale where he teaches courses on the intellectual history of Islam, its theology (both classical and modern), and the way Islamic thinkers react to Western modernity.
