Secularism Discourse and Muslim Intellectuals in Modern Egypt

Säkularismus-Diskurs und muslimische Intellektuelle im modernen Ägypten

Now in Paperback
Secularism (al-'almaniyya) is an important yet highly divisive issue in the Arabic world. This study reconstructs, on the basis of recent Arabic publications and illustrative case studies, the social and religious problems attached to secularism as concept. Stressing the ambivalent authority of the Muslim intellectual from a sociological point of view, Kinitz’s study is an important contribution to understanding Islam in the globalized present.
