Defenders of Reason in Islam


is a book about the rationalist tradition in Islam, or the mu3tazilah. I mentioned the book in Quranology Discussions today. Their existence shows that what is considered ‘unthinkable’ today (that was a homage to Mohamed Arkoun) in Islam was perfectly thought of back then.

Have a look at the book at Amazon.com
