Dear Readers,
While at home, let's all zoom in this Monday at 6.30 pm to attend this interesting talk by NYU institute, to examine both the meaning and application of justice in The Thousand and One Nights (Alf Laylah wa-Laylah). The Speaker shows that the opening story, or frame tale, as well as the two immediately following stories, "The Merchant and the Genie" and "The Fisherman and the ‘Ifrīt," stories broach a question of ethics frequently encountered in advice literature.
