A la recherche d’un aggiornamento de l’islam t

Can the upheavals in the Arab-Muslim world lead to an aggiornamento regulating the link between religion and politics and making it possible to live better together in peace? To answer this question, this book first compares the organization of society in Western thought and in Arab-Muslim thought. He analyzes the conceptions of public space, the legitimacy of political power and the sources of legislation according to modern Muslim reformist and liberalist humanist intellectual currents.

Back cover:

At present and in our opinion, the Arab-Muslim world, more particularly the countries affected by the Arab Spring, is in a situation of upheaval, comparable to that which Europe experienced at the time of the reform and religious wars. Can this context lead to “a set of radical solutions” or to a “real cultural and social transformation”, that is to say to a real aggiornamento regulating the link between religion and politics and allowing better living? -together in peace? To answer this question, this book first compares the organization of society in Western thought and in Arab-Muslim thought. He analyzes the conceptions of public space, the legitimacy of political power and the sources of legislation according to modern Muslim reformist and liberalist humanist intellectual currents. He then makes an initial genealogy of new players and emerging perspectives in these two trends in order to identify their evolutions and ruptures. Inspired by these evolutions and ruptures, this research finally presents a procedural approach of a Muslim aggiornamento.

À l’heure actuelle et à notre sens, le monde arabo-musulman, plus particulièrement les pays touchés par le printemps arabe, se trouve dans une situation de bouleversement, comparable à celle qu’avait connue l’Europe à l’époque de la Réforme et des guerres de Religion. Ce contexte peut-il mener à “un ensemble de solutions radicales” ou à une “véritable transformation culturelle et sociale”, c’est-à-dire à un véritable aggiornamento régulant le lien entre le religieux et le politique et permettant le mieux vivre-ensemble dans la paix ?

Pour répondre à cette question, ce livre se permet d’abord de comparer l’organisation de la société dans la pensée occidentale et dans la pensée arabo-musulmane. Il analyse les conceptions de l’espace public, de la légitimité du pouvoir politique et des sources de la réflexion juridique selon les courants intellectuels réformistes et libéraux humanistes musulmans modernes. Il fait ensuite une généalogie des nouveaux acteurs et des perspectives émergentes dans ces deux courants afin d’en identifier les évolutions et les ruptures. Inspirée de ces évolutions et ruptures, cette recherche présente enfin une approche procédurale d’un aggiornamento musulman.

¿Pueden los trastornos en el mundo árabe-musulmán conducir a un aggiornamento que regule el vínculo entre religión y política y haga posible vivir mejor juntos en paz? Para responder a esta pregunta, este libro primero compara la organización de la sociedad en el pensamiento occidental y en el pensamiento árabe-musulmán. Analiza las concepciones del espacio público, la legitimidad del poder político y las fuentes de la legislación según las corrientes intelectuales reformistas musulmanas modernas y humanistas liberales.

Contraportada:

En la actualidad y en nuestra opinión, el mundo árabe-musulmán, más en particular los países afectados por la Primavera Árabe, se encuentra en una situación de convulsión, comparable a la que había conocido Europa en la época del reforma y guerras religiosas. ¿Puede este contexto conducir a “un conjunto de soluciones radicales” oa una “transformación cultural y social real”, es decir, a un aggiornamento real que regule el vínculo entre religión y política y permita vivir mejor? -juntos en paz? Para responder a esta pregunta, este libro primero compara la organización de la sociedad en el pensamiento occidental y en el pensamiento árabe-musulmán. Analiza las concepciones del espacio público, la legitimidad del poder político y las fuentes de la legislación según las corrientes intelectuales reformistas musulmanas modernas y humanistas liberales. A continuación, realiza una genealogía inicial de nuevos actores y perspectivas emergentes en estas dos tendencias para identificar sus evoluciones y rupturas. Inspirada en estas evoluciones y rupturas, esta investigación finalmente presenta un enfoque procedimental de un aggiornamento musulmán.
