Beschreibung

""Enemy in the Mirror" is a necessary corrective to a good deal of ill-considered polemic, one that has important implications for understanding all types of fundamentalism. Roxanne Euben makes convincing arguments, encouraging the reader to reconsider the origins of modern rationalism and anti-rationalism. Her insistence that political theory open its doors to consideration of questions drawn from other cultures is also saluta0ry and long overdue."--Edmund Burke, III, University of California, Santa Cruz"Roxanne Euben's argument that one should analyze Islamic fundamentalist thought not only for its function but also for its meaning--the intrinsic value of its ideas--is valid and absolutely timely. "Enemy in the Mirror" is a well-researched and impressive contribution to the analysis of Islamic political thought and to comparative political philosophy."--Seyla Benhabib, Harvard University

Pressestimmen

"[A] piercing book, lending the reader insights into the complex intermingling of religious and political ideas that are separate in the Western mind, but which form a spiritual union under Islam."--John A. C. Greppin, The Boston Book Review "Enemy in the Mirror offers an astute interdisciplinary study that calls on Western scholarship to take a short (irrational?) break from its instrumental rationality. This might help it to see that the scary face of Enemy/Other is depicted in a mirror that the modern rationality, for centuries, has held in front of its own face."--Alireza Shomali, International Journal of Middle East Studies
