    Meanwhile much of the Muslim world seems to be turning away from the liberal values that have defined Europe since New York: Oxford University Press. Muslim scholars have long been recognized for their contributions to the preservation of classical learning during the Dark Ages. How can they exhume and popularize principles and practices that allowed Muslims in the past to coexist with others, in peace and on equal terms, regardless of religious affiliation? One not infrequently observes among Muslims an internalized double standard of behavior.

    In addition, Paya presents a faithful account of the fundamental premises of critical rationalism. Sometimes crises and the subsequent marshaling of moral and intellectual resources can bring out the best in an individual and in a community. And assuming a West faithful to its deepest spiritual wellsprings, Islam too is bound to be challenged and affected by prolonged peaceful contact with a civilization alien to itself. Muslim thinkers and political activists in Iran and other Islamic societies have responded to Western-style modernity in a variety of ways.

    They may, while traveling or residing temporarily in the West, abandon themselves to license, but abide by a system of rigid prohibitions and punishments back home. Since the late s, Islamic revivalism has increasingly come to dominate religious and political discourse in much of the Muslim world. This textbook, while academic, remains respectful in tone, yet thoughtful in the issues raised throughout. Islam: A Short History.
