Description from the publisher:
Cultural symbols are what distinguish most the human species from other species. The study of Cultural Symbols must, therefore, be extremely central to human and social sciences. Without a full understanding of them social scientists can hardly claim to have an articulate knowledge about the individuals's behaviour and the dynamics of societies.
This book examine Cultural Symbols with a perspective uncommon among today's Western behavioural social sciences. Our research shows that Cultural Symbols have transcendental dimensions. With the use of the latter in our analysis of society and the individual, as units of study, our understanding and explanations are bound to improve. This is what Toward Islamic Sociology of Cultural Symbols aspires to achieve.
