Book Launch: Islam and the Trajectory of Globalization

2023.9.27 10:30


In this book reading and signing session, Dr. Louay Safi, professor of political science and Islamic thought at HBKU, will introduce his book, read a synopsis, and sign the paperback edition of his book: Islam and the Trajectory of Globalization (Routledge, 2023).

The book addresses two interrelated long-term global processes that continue to shape modern society. The first is Islamic rationalism which evolved in early Muslim civilizations and facilitated the rise of modern institutions, particularly religious pluralism, moral autonomy, accountability of power holders, and the scientific enterprise at the foundation of modern society. The other is Western imperialism and its tendencies to promote social hierarchy and identity politics that are currently manifested in the rising economic disparity and the mass migration from the countries of the South to the North.
