Description from the publisher:

This is an era when the Islamic World is making a range of attempts to redefine itself and to grapple with the challenges of modernity. Many schools of thought have emerged which seek to position modern Islam within the context of a rapidly changing contemporary world. Exploring and defining the relationship between religion and knowledge; Ismail Rafi Al-Faruqi; a distinguished 20th century Arab-American scholar of Islam; formulated ideas which have made substantial contributions to the Islam-and-modernity discourse. His review of the interaction between Islam and knowledge examines the philosophy behind this relationship; and the ways in which Islam can relate to our understanding of science; the arts; architecture; technology and other knowledge-based fields of enquiry. This book includes contributions from Seyyed Hossein Nasr; John Esposito; Charles Fletcher and others; and will prove an essential reference point for scholars of Islam and students of philosophy and comparative religion.
