ByDustin J. Byrd

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Critical Theory of Religion: From the Frankfurt School to Emancipatory Islamic Thought is a collection of essays by the critical theorist Dustin J. Byrd written over the course of ten years. They range from the Frankfurt School's political secularization of Judaism’s image ban (bilderverbot), to various encounters between Western and Islamic thinkers. The later essays in the volume focus intensely on the "daseinkampf" that has now engrossed the modern multicultural west. They ask, "what does it mean to be Western, and how do Islam and Muslims fit into that Western identity?" This book is essential reading for those interested in the intersection of religion and politics, modern Western identity thought, and the struggle for a future wherein Muslins and Westerners can find common ground and live in peace as neighbors.
