The Expansion Of Prophetic Experience: Essays On Historicity, Contingency And Plurality In Religion
Tags: К»Abd al-KarД«m SurЕ«sh

Abdulkarim Soroush is known primarily for his epistemological/hermeneutical theory, the a oeContraction and Expansion of Religious Knowledge, a and its application to Islamic political theory and religious pluralism. While his "Reason, Freedom and Democracy in Islam "applies that theory to plurality and the historicity of understanding and interpretation of religion, this book captures some of his original theories about religion itself. "The Expansion of Prophetic Experience" treats the historicity of the Prophet Muhammada (TM)s revelatory experience, including human and contextual influences on the genesis of the sacred Text. It presents substantial aspects of Sorousha (TM)s Neo-Rationalist hermeneutical project for an Islamic reformed theology and ethics, systematically leading Islamic reformation beyond conventional projects of piecemeal adjustments to the ShariEah or selective re-interpretations of the QurE3/4An.
