In Search of a Muslim Hero

The Waldgang - The Forest Passage and Calling Things by Their Proper Names

April 30, 2021

In this episode Abdallah discusses the essay by Ernst Junger titled the Waldgang with Dr Ali Azzali, a teacher and historian based in Cape Town, South Africa. 

The Waldgang translates into English as the Forest Passage and is a metaphor for the journey to the self, to break from the fear of death and emerge from the 'Forest' heroic, spontaneous and free to call things by their proper names.
