FREEDOM, MODERNITY, AND ISLAM
This text provides a discussion of the philosophical origins of the notions of freedom in both a Western and Islamic context. Khuri maintains that standard theories of modernization do not fully explain the global resurgence of fundamental religion. Only with a new analysis of freedom, using Western and non-Western sources, can we have a spontaneous synthesis that will inspire genuine freedom for all individuals and societies in the Arab-Muslim world.
