Overcoming Tradition and Modernity: The Search for Islamic Authenticity

Synopsis

This book examines the efforts of four Muslim thinkers of the twentieth century-Muhammad Iqbal, Sayyid Qutb, 'Ali Shari'ati, & Mohammed Arkoun-to overcome the apparent dichotomy of tradition & modernity in fashioning a new political & cultural truth. Robert Lee illuminates the European-influenced work of these thinkers to demonstrate both the appeal of "authenticity" as a rallying cry & the difficulty of building a new politics on such an idea.
