Islam and Logos
by E. Michael Jones. Many assume incorrectly that Islam is one coherent body of doctrine and action. There are many forms of Islam, including Sunni and Shia, which themselves differ in their approach to religious and social issues. After an introduction to the 1979 Iranian revolution and a history of earlier Islam, Islam and Logos turns to the significance of the concept of Logos, including an examination the nature of Islam in the light of Logos. It next details the approach of the Sunni and the Shia and that of Catholicism concerning faith and reason, before discussing the different approaches of Western and Islamic philosophy. Islam and Logos then addresses specific issues, most importantly: the question of Logos and sex; the allegation that the United States is the Great Satan; and Foucaults contribution to thought on the Islamic revolution.
