Book Description:

"Moosa brilliantly argues that Ghazali did not reconcile contradictions between different systems of thought by forging middle grounds or by producing a great synthesis of multiple systems of knowledge. Rather, he imagined new forms of knowledge through which contradictory views can be simultaneously maintained. Ghazali thus exemplifies the ability to position oneself in intellectual exile while remaining a committed insider. Moosa's study of Ghazali offers creative solutions to the contemporary crisis of Muslim thought."--Ahmad Dallal, Georgetown University

From the Inside Flap:

In this examination of the work of Abu Hamid al-Ghazali--a prominent Muslim theologian known for his writing in philosophy, ethics, law, and mysticism--Moosa argues that Ghazali's work has lasting relevance as an model for cosmopolitan intellectual renewal among Muslims.
