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."@en ;
