Summary

The introduction situates the book within the recent methodological developments in the study of Islam, and non-Western thought in general. After highlighting the book’s proposed contribution within and outside the study of Islam, the introduction constructs a framework for the “appropriation” of historical texts in philosophical conversations on the basis of contemporary theories of philosophical hermeneutics. Finally, the introduction shows that that there are at least four major ways in which our engagement with this distant tradition can result in self-understanding: non-critical, critical-historical, critical-comparative, and dialogical. The present study capitalizes on those developments with an aim to move from critical-comparative to dialogical self-understanding.
