Postmodernism and Islam: Predicament and Promise

by

Postmodernism and Islam: Predicament and Promise Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He makes use of the postmodern theme of the displaced, circulating image to show how images are used to tell stories - stories which are not always helpful or accurate. Written with panache and an unswerving fidelity to truth Postmodernism and Islam will help us to understand our times. Above all, it will be seen as a major enquiry in the study of Islamic and Christian relations.

Synopsis:

Aims to reduce misunderstandings between East and West and to make what seems alien to "each" culture intelligible. Going through history, the book explores such questions as how the study of Greek gods can help to make sense of the current perceptions and misperceptions in East-West relations.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [266]-277) and indexes.
