Muslims, Islams and Occidental Anxieties

Standard Coming Soon book cover

Muslims, Islams and Occidental Anxieties deconstructs our common prejudices about the incompatibility between Muslim and Western civilizations. Rather than offering readers the facile moral choice between an Islam either “all good” or “all bad,” we argue that Islam represents a system of alternative ethical “goods” to those traditionally valued in the West. In this sense, Islam does not threaten Western moral identity. Rather, in offering its own ideas of what constitutes “the good,” Islam offers the West opportunities to enhance and extend its own realm of “the good.” 

Along with with extensive instructional notes and guidelines, the book employs the powerful and intellectually rigorous device of the Platonic philosophical dialogue.
