The Intellectual Traditions in Islam highlights the pivotal role of the intellect in the formation of Islamic culture and civilisation, and its continuing relevance for the Muslim world today. By demonstrating the extent to which some of the seminal achievements of Islamic civilisation, especially in the areas of legal, theological, philosophical, scientific and mystical thought, were underpinned by a vigorous culture of intellectual inquiry and debate, this work seeks not only to promote a better understanding of Islam but also to encourage further debate on the dilemmas facing contemporary Muslim societies as they enter a new era of unprecedented political, economic, technological and cultural change in world history
