内容説明

A Berber from the mountainous region of Algeria, Mohammed Arkoun is an internationally renowned scholar of Islamic thought. In this book, he advocates a conception of Islam as a stream of experience encompassing majorities and minorities, Sunni and Shia, popular mystics and erudite scholars, ancient heroes and modern critics. A product of Islamic culture, Arkoun nonetheless disagrees with the Islamic establishment and militant Islamist groups; as a student of twentieth-century social science in the West and an admirer of liberalism, he self-consciously distances himself from Western Orientalists and Western conceptions of liberalism. This bookthe first of Arkouns works to be widely available in Englishpresents his responses to twenty-four deceptively simple questions, including: Can one speak of a scientific understanding of Islam in the West or must one rather talk about the Western way of imagining Islam? What do the words Islam, Muslim, and Quran mean? What is meant by revelation and tradition? What did Islam retain from the previously revealed religionsJudaism and Christianity? What did it retain from the religions and customs of pre-Islamic Arabia? In answering these and other questions, Arkoun provides an introduction to one of the worlds great religions and offers a biting, radical critique of Islamology as it has been practiced in both East and West. This is a book for the beginning student of Islam and for the general reader uneasy with media images of Islam as a monolithic, anti-Western, violence-prone religion. It is also a book for specialists seeking an entr into Arkouns methhodologyhis efforts toapply contemporary thinking about anthropology, philosophy, semiotics, history, and sociology to the Islamic tradition and its relationship to the West. It is a book for anyone concerned about the identity crisis that has left many Muslims estranged from both a modernity imposed upon them and a tradition subverted for nationalist and Islamist purposes.

内容説明

The Islamic scholar and commentator Mohammed Arkoun is a product of Islamic culture, but is also in many ways at odds with the Islamic establishment and militant Islamist groups. At the same time, whilst he is a student of 20th-century social science in the West and an admirer of liberalism, as a thinker he consciously distances himself from western orientalists and western understanding of liberalism. In this work Arkoun applies contemporary thinking about anthropology, philosophy, semiotics, history and sociology to the Islamic tradition and its relationship to the West. Presented as the author's answers to 24 deceptively simple questions about Islam, the book explores the identity crisis that has left many Muslims estranged both from an alien modernity and a tradition often subverted for nationalist and Islamist purposes.
