PHIL 155 PZ -Islam vs. Islam


Institution: Pitzer

Description: In this course we will examine the major theological/philosophical traditions: the “rationalist” and the “traditionalist,” that emerged in early Islamic history and continues to exist to the present day. In the course of the examination, we will see how these two traditions FUNDAMENTALLY disagree on how to determine the nature of God, the status of the Quran, the significance of the prophetic tradition, and the roles of human reason on Muslim society. We will investigate these topics in the writings of thinkers from the classic period to the present-day, such as al-Ash’ari, al-Baqilani, al-Qadi, al-Ghazali, Aricenna, Averroes, Ibn Taymiyyah ‘Abd al-Wahab, etc.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
