Preface I. The Problem: Islam as a Holistic System II. Edward Said's Orientalism and His Critics III. Globalization, World Society and the Global Public Sphere: Understanding Multiple Modernities IV. State, Science and Religion: Modern Europe Between Positivism and Christian Apology V. Islam as a Problem:A" The Formation of Islamic Studies VI. Orientalist Constructions, Islamic Reform and Islamist Revolution VII. Epilog
In light of the ongoing public debate that focuses on differences between Islam and the West, this book suggests a change of perspective. It departs from the observation that both western Orientalists and Islamist activists have defined Islam similarly as an all-encompassing religious, political and social system.
