Islamization of Modern Science and its Philosophy: A Contemporary Civilizational Discourse - Softcover
Author: Muhammad Mumtaz Ali
Publisher: IIUM Press
Dr. Mumtaz Ali’s book is a wideranging survey of the history and development of science. He shows the unprecedented and seminal role of the Qur’an upon human thought and the enormous methodological debt modern western science owes to truth-based science’s contribution to thehuman intellectual heritage. Just as importantly, he makes it clear that, despite claimsto neutrality and objectivity, modern Western science, like all human activities reflects the modern Western assumptions of its practitioners. Hence, he calls that science ‘modern Western science’ which, he argues, is based on a false view of life and the world. He advocates for the revival of that truth-based science. Since truth-based science had fallen into a deathlike coma, there has been no one to challenge those assumptions until recently. Dr. Ali strives to sketch the unique characteristics of truth based science that can help provide an alternative to modern Western science that dominates scientific endeavours in the modern world. Hence, he defines Islamization of modern Western science and its philosophy.
