  • 19 March 2002

The lecture discussed the concept of “political Islam,”
and its evolution and its applications in modern thought,
making a distinction between a Muslim and an Islamist
activist and their respective meanings in the discourse
on political Islam. It also examined the perspectives of
different intellectual schools with regard to these two
terms.
The discussion shed light on political pluralism
from an Islamic perspective, examining theoretical
and practical aspects, and the attitude of different
Islamic schools of thought toward political pluralism, as
opposed to the nationalist, liberal and leftist perspectives.
It also offered a comparison between the perspectives of
Islamic philosophy and religious Western philosophies
and political pluralism.
