About this title


Ebrahim Moosa sets out to stimulate a rethinking of traditional Islamic legacies in cosmopolitan contemporary terms, in this case rethinking Ghazali, one of the most important Islamic theologians of all time.

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
