Abstract

This book explores ‘critical thinking’ within the context of the Islamic revivalist movement. At 169 pages, the book consists of an Introduction and five chapters. Upon closer inspection, however, the book turns out to be more of a critique of ‘modernist’, ‘moderate’, and ‘liberalist’ Muslims than an inquiry into the meaning of critical thinking from a purely Islamic perspective.

It appears that - to Ali - Islam and modernity are simply incompatible. Modernisation and Westernisation to him are two sides of the same coin. The fact that large numbers of Muslims have successfully integrated in Western societies seems to have little significance to him.
