Orientations: Islamic Thought in a World Civilisation
Islamic Thought in a World Civilisation
Behind today's media stereotypes of an apocalyptic 'clash of civilisations, ' could we be witnessing the epochal birth of new spiritual, ethical and cultural forms of communion, of a nascent global civilisation? 'Orientations' begins with those intimately familiar situations of disorientation, painful conflict and confusion whose most dramatic expressions are daily so visible in emblematic images from each Jerusalem or Sarajevo. It presents three Muslim thinkers whose seminal works together provide the inspiration for positive, realistic, and constructive responses to those challenges.
