Rethinking Islam : common questions, uncommon answers by Mohammed Arkoun( Book )

32 editions published between 1989 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 1,236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 Shi'a, 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 book-the first of Arkoun's works to be widely available in English-presents 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 "Qur'an" mean? What is meant by "revelation" and "tradition''? What did Islam retain from the previously revealed religions-Judaism 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 world's 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 entré into Arkoun's methhodology-his 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"--provided by publisher

Islam : to reform or to subvert? by Mohammed Arkoun( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time when Islam is the focus of attention, vilified by some and a source of inspiration for others, Arkoun's is one of few voices that seek to go against the stream. His radical review of mainstream historiography of Islam draws on interdisciplinary analysis - historical, social, psychological and anthropological. One of the foremost thinkers of the Muslim world, Arkoun is in a position to question dogmatic constructs from within, with respect and critical acumen. An understanding of this approach can lead to an emancipatory turn in the intellectual and political spheres of Muslim societies."--Jacket
The unthought in contemporary Islamic thought by Mohammed Arkoun( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a combination of pertinent disciplines - history, sociology, psychology and anthropology - the author's approach subjects every system of belief and non-belief, every tradition of exegesis, theology and jurisprudence to a critique aimed at liberating reason from the grip of dogmatic postulates. By treating Islam as a religion as well as a time-honoured tradition of thought, Mohammed Arkoun's work aims at overcoming the limitations of descriptive, narrative and chronological modes in history by recommending that the entire development of Islamic thought - from Quranic to modern-day fundamentalist discourses - be subjected to a critical analysis guided by these categories. The expected outcome of such a strategy is an emancipated political reason working hand in hand with a creative imagination for a radical re-construction of mind and society in the contemporary Muslim world

Lectures du Coran by Mohammed Arkoun( Book )

21 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in French and English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mohammed Arkoun (1928-2010) est l'une des plus grandes figures de l'islamologie contemporaine. Son approche scientifique, centrée sur la critique de la raison islamique, a fait de lui le précurseur de tous ceux qui veulent en finir avec les impasses mortifères du littéralisme en se fondant sur l'apport des sciences humaines. LectureS du Coran, paru initialement en 1982, est un ouvrage-clé de sa démarche : il mobilise toutes les ressources de la linguistique, de la sémiotique, de l'histoire des mentalités et de la sociologie pour déconstruire le discours classique sur le Coran. Ce faisant, il aborde les sujets les plus brûlants : statut du Livre comme parole de Dieu, shar'a et condition de la femme, jihd, islam et politique ... et montre en quoi toutes les lectures du Coran sont nécessairement des constructions humaines. Mohammed Arkoun considérait ce livre comme la matrice de son œuvre et a consacré les dernières années de sa vie à le remanier et à l'enrichir. Son épouse, Touria

Les relations qui se sont tissées au fil des siècles entre l'islam et la France à travers une histoire politique, sociale, culturelle riche et tumultueuse méritent une réflexion sur les apports qui ont été faits de part et d'autre et la manière dont s'est nourri cet échange. À l'occasion de la parution de l'ouvrage collectif Histoire de l'islam et des musulmans en France du Moyen Âge à nos jours, aux Éditions Albin Michel, somme encyclopédique qui rend compte sur le long terme des liens étroits entre la France et l'islam, sont retracées ici la richesse et la complexité de cette relation et exposée la réflexion des participants sur la nécessité de projeter sur les problématiques contemporaines les perspectives de l'histoire de longue durée
De Manhattan à Bagdad : au-delà du bien et du mal by Mohammed Arkoun( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le présent dialogue, entre deux spécialistes des mondes arabe et musulman, cherche à élucider la signification des attentats qui, depuis le 11 septembre 2001, ont réveillé des clivages entre " Orient " et " Occident " et toute une série d'interrogations sur le devenir propre de l'Islam. Sont ainsi abordés la confrontation du fait religieux avec la modernité, les questions géopolitiques soulevées par la stratégie des Etats-Unis en Afghanistan et en Irak, le nécessaire renouveau de la politique européenne. Les auteurs tentent de comprendre le détournement de la pensée islamique par des représentations qui l'instrumentalisent. Ils plaident pour une redécouverte de l'histoire de l'Islam, ce qui suppose une nouvelle lecture de son inscription dans l'histoire universelle
