POLS 347 - Islamic Political Thought

This course investigates the origins and metamorphoses of a host of ideas and intellectual tendencies that is commonly referred to as Islamic Political Thought. The recent worldwide resurgence of political Islam and its growing importance in international and domestic affairs make an examination of this intellectual genre a timely study. After all, contemporary Islamic intellectual currents both refer to and rely on past and present political philosophies and, in so doing, remind us that without a deep understanding of these philosophies we will not be able to fully understand the nuances of many contemporary events.
