Jihad or Ijtihad: Religious Orthodoxy and Modern Science in Contemporary Islam

Jihad or Ijtihad: Religious Orthodoxy and Modern Science in Contemporary Islam

S. Irfan Habib

  • $ 941


Starting with the reformers of the nineteenth century and ending with present-day ideologues, Habib questions the controversial idea of Islamic science as a category distinct from modern, Eurocentric science. Through the lives of famous men like Sir Syed Ahmed Khan and Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Habib shows the reader that the modern-day promulgation of Islam and its followers as anti-modern and anti-science is a myth that leads, quite literally, to explosive consequences.
