The malady of Islam by Abdelwahab Meddeb( Book )

41 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary Islam is infected with a sickness that is cutting it off from the richness of its own tradition and history. In this impassioned, erudite and deeply moving book, Abdelwahab Meddeb traces the genealogy of this malady and at the same time powerfully demonstrates the pluralist tradition at the heart of Islam. In so doing, he dismantles the common misconceptions of both western scholars of Islam and Islamic fundamentalists, and offers new paths for engagement between Islam and the West." "Meddeb, born and raised in Tunis, and now living in Paris, approaches the rise of fundamentalism with a wide-ranging intellect that encompasses Voltaire, Nietzsche, Goethe, Kant, as well a deep knowledge of classical Arabic literature and philosophy. He is uniquely positioned to see the damage that has been wrought on both cultures by the alienation between Islam and the West. Meddeb shows us why it is imperative for the West to engage with Islam as a part of the Western tradition, and for Islam to look back, not at the letter of the religious text, but to the polemics, controversies, and debates that nourished Islam when it was at its peak."--Jacket

Le personnage marche dans Paris, les sens aux aguets, l'esprit à l'affût, captant la sensation qui transfigure et l'idée qui illumine, à travers la saisie des objets qui fascinent en leur familiarité.

Comme pour situer le protagoniste dans la fragilité que procure l'insatiable quête de l'image féminine de la changeante Aya, possédée, imprenable

Contre-prêches : chroniques by Abdelwahab Meddeb( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in French and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En Europe et dans le monde, l'islam est aujourd'hui au carrefour de ses avancées et de ses archaïsmes, partagé entre ceux qui croient aux valeurs de la démocratie, de la liberté, de la création venue de l'homme, et ceux qui, aveuglés par leur fanatisme, les dénient au nom d'un mythique recours à ce qu'ils appellent la " souveraineté divine ". Dans ces Contre-prêches - qui sont tout sauf des prêches ! - Abdelwahab Meddeb montre que l'islam a déjà eu, dans sa culture et son histoire, les capacités, la force de rébellion et les audaces nécessaires pour assumer ses mutations. Cet examen critique l'aidera à entendre la raison libre quand elle réfute avec tranchant la foi qui prêche la servitude et assigne aux humains un destin sot et détestable. -- Back cover
