Kelâmda Yenilik Arayışları

(Search for New Approaches in Theology [at the end of 19th and the beginning of 20th century])
M. Sait Özervarlı


Starting at the end of the 19th century, new arguments were advanced proposing a change in the approach to the contents and methods of the science of kalam, or theology. These arguments emerged as a result of the growing influence of the westernization movements on the Islamic world and of the increasingly common application of modern scientific methods. This book examines the way Islamic scholars approached the science of kalam, the manner in which they analyzed important topics, and the instruments they used to prove their points in such important cultural centers as those in Ottoman Turkey, Egypt, and India at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. The author presents a multi-faceted analysis of the new ways of looking at the science of kalam during this time period.
