Philosophy and Modern Arab Intellectual Issues: A Critical Assessment

My research project lies in the interface between contemporary Arab philosophy and contemporary Arab thought. It aims at critically assessing the possible contributions of contemporary Arab philosophy to some of the main issues of contemporary Arab thought. During my stay at the IWM, I plan to examine this interface in the work of Sadeq Jalal al-Azm.
