La historia del Corán (10 libros que cambiaron el mundo) by Bruce Lawrence PDF

Una introducción seria y magníficamente escrita por el respetado historiador de las religiones Bruce Lawrence a uno de los libros más famosos del mundo.

«Lo hemos hecho descender con l. a. Verdad y con los angeles Verdad ha descendido. No te hemos enviado [Mahoma] sino como anuncio de buenas nuevas y como computer screen. »

El Corán

Pocos libros han sido tan mal comprendidos a lo largo de los angeles historia como el Corán. Considerado los angeles palabra directa de Alá, fue enviado en una serie de revelaciones al profeta Mahoma, y es adorado por los musulmanes de todo el mundo, en quienes despierta devoción, pasión, y en ocasiones miedo.

En este libro, el respetado historiador de las religiones Bruce Lawrence, muestra por qué el Corán es el islam. Describe los orígenes de los angeles fe musulmana en los angeles Arabia del siglo VII y explica por qué el Corán ha de ser memorizado y recitado por sus seguidores. Lawrence también estudia a los escépticos y los comentaristas del libro, y evalúa su inmensa influencia en los angeles sociedad y l. a. política contemporáneas. Sobre todo, Lawrence subraya que el Corán es un libro sagrado de símbolos que no tiene un único mensaje. Es un libro que exige ser interpretado, y que solo puede ser comprendido correctamente a través de su historia.

This may enhance citizenship rights within states, but it also expresses the classic antimony of state versus market in the definition of democracy. This essentially redefines democracy by reducing it to liberalism (Wood 1995: 234), reflecting a Lockean emphasis on the emancipation of market forces from the confines of the state as its defining characteristic. Locke’s arbitrary separation of the private economic sphere of the market from the public realm of the state allowed liberalism, on its most elementary level, to be understood in terms of ‘removing the state’s hand from the market, and .

The irony of Tanzimat reforms is that while it was intended to save the empire by strengthening central state authority, it actually triggered an increase in uprisings and national independence movements. Many of the traditional Ottoman regulations which granted substantive autonomy to millets also increased the possibility of foreign states demanding greater protection for non-Muslims, to the extent of even wanting to be recognized as protectors of Ottoman Christian subjects. The 1869 nationality law was in fact designed to combat foreign states’ interference in Ottoman affairs in the name of protecting Ottoman non-Muslims (Davison 1993: 68).

What does it hope to achieve? Does it aim to cultivate a ‘public ethos of engagement,’ to evoke Connolly (1999: 5), between European and Islamic moral sensibilities and normative patterns? Or, does it constitute an illiberal movement? And how does it interact with conceptions of secular modernity and the rule of state in Turkey? In overcoming seemingly antithetical formulations, I imagine there may be more to accomplish than simply reproduce ideologies that assert the moral superiority of secular modernity and view Islam as a potential impediment to that morality.
