Reformation of Islamic thought : a critical historical analysis by Naṣr Ḥāmid Abū Zayd( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since the dramatic events of September 11, 2001 the fundamentalist and exclusivist trend prevails in most presentations of Islamic thinking. Indeed, these events have given extremists and fundamentalists a much more prominent position than they might ever have dreamt of. In Reformation of Islamic Thought, the prominent Egyptian scholar Nasr Abû Zayd examines the positive, liberal, and inclusive reaction embedded in the writings of Muslim thinkers. He takes the reader on a critical journey across the Muslim World, where Muslim thinkers from Egypt and Iran to Indonesia seek to divest Islam of traditionalistic and legalistic interpretation. Instead, these thinkers stress the value of a cultural, enlightened Islam, and an individualistic faith. For many, the dogmatic Islam established by the conservatives and supported by totalitarian political regimes is outdated; they want it replaced by a spiritual and ethical Islam. To what extent are these reformist thinkers engaged in a genuine renewal of Islamic thought? Do they succeed in escaping the traditionalist trap of presenting a purely negative image of the West?

Den Islam neu denken : der Dschihad für Demokratie, Freiheit und Frauenrechte by Katajun Amirpur( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dem Islam wird oft nachgesagt, er habe den Anschluss an Moderne und Aufklärung verpasst - ein Irrtum, wie Katajun Amirpur in ihrem eindrucksvollen Buch zeigt. Sie stellt die einflussreichsten Erneuerer des Islams vor, die sich für Demokratie und Menschenrechte einsetzen und dabei immer mehr Anhänger in Orient und Okzident finden. Sie wollen die Deutungshoheit über den Islam nicht den Fundamentalisten überlassen und setzen dem Dschihad gegen die Ungläubigen ihren eigenen Dschihad für mehr Freiheit und die Gleichberechtigung der Geschlechter entgegen. Zur Sprache kommen unter anderem der ägyptische Korangelehrte Abu Zaid, der durch die Zwangsscheidung von seiner Frau bekannt wurde, und die amerikanische Frauenrechtlerin Amina Wadud, die mit der Leitung eines Freitagsgebets - als erste Frau überhaupt - weltweit Aufsehen erregte. Ihre auf dem Koran gründenden Überlegungen zu einer gerechten politischen Teilhabe aller Menschen können, so zeigt das Buch, auch für Nicht-Muslime höchst anregend sein. "Die Frage ist nicht, ob der Islam mit der Demokratie vereinbar ist, sondern ob die Muslime heute diese Vereinbarkeit entstehen lassen wollen." Mohammad M. Shabestari Katajun Amirpur, geb. 1971, ist Professorin für Islamische Studien an der Universität Hamburg. Sie schreibt zudem als Journalistin regelmässig für grosse Zeitungen und Zeitschriften

Iranian challenges by Walter Posch( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is no exaggeration to say that the Islamic Republic of Iran has posed a challenge to the West since the very day of its inception. Tensions between Iran and the US and Israel were high through-out the 1980s and 1990s. However, since 2002 and especially in the wake of the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as President, concerns about Iran's nuclear issue have further worsened relations, to such an extent that the US identified Iran as a main security challenge in its National Security Strategy of March 2006. For this Chaillot Paper, a number of respected academics who are specialists in international relations and Iranian studies were asked to contribute chapters analysing Iran through the lens of their expertise. The volume covers three main areas: Iran's domestic affairs; Iran and security; and Iran's relations with the West. The authors touch on various topics, including the repercussions of the June 2005 elections and the advent of President Ahmadinejad, the future of the reform movement in Iran, Iranian-American and EU-Iran relations, and - inevitably - the critical nuclear issue. The nuclear standoff has forced the EU to embrace a unique tool of diplomacy: the E3/EU format, which has given the EU diplomatic and political flexibility and ensured inner European cohesion. This format has been the latest chapter in a long series of dialogue formulas between the EU and Iran. It is imperative that the EU continues its engagement with the Islamic Republic. And, as this Chaillot Paper shows, in doing so, it will not only have to take transatlantic relations into account but will also be obliged to consider new regional realities provoked by the war in Iraq and internal Iranian dynamics. It is therefore urgent and necessary for the EU to find an approach that will enable it to craft an effective policy to address the new challenges."--Abstract from ISS web site
