Book Title:An Early Crescent: The Future of Knowledge and the Environment in Islam
Editor(s):Sardar, Ziauddin
Publisher Name:Mansell
Place of Publication:London and New York
Date of Publication:1989
Annotation:This edited volume is divided into two sections, on thought and epistemology, and science and the environment. After questioning the epistemological and methodological foundations of modern natural and social sciences, Sardar proposes an Islamization of knowledge that would help develop conceptual categories and values from within Islam. Other essays include S. Parvez Manzoor writing on the crisis of Muslim thought and the future of the Ummah (Muslim community), Seyyed Hossein Nasr addresses Islam and the problem of modern science, Hussein Mehmet Ateshin discusses urbanization and the environment, and Ayyub Malik examines the recent history and possible future of Muslim cities.
