Description

The principal theological struggle in Islam has taken place between traditionalist and rationalist theologians. Assessing materials from the 3rd/9th century to the 10th/16th century, Professor Abrahamov focuses on the foundations of both traditionalism and rationalism, the arguments which the two tendencies used against each other and the compromises reached. This is a ground-breaking study by a renowned scholar and writer.show more

Review quote

An excellent book and would be much used on a variety of courses. There have in recent years appeared a number of books on Islamic theology which seek to set the subject off in a new direction, and this is definitely such a book. -- Oliver Leaman, Liverpool John Moores University An excellent book and would be much used on a variety of courses.
