Islam ‒ Knowledge ‒ Power. Interactions from a Theological and Historical Perspective
The conference aims to reflect on the development of Islamic knowledge and its relationship with the discursive and political order. In doing so, both historical and contemporary issues are raised: What positions exist in the tradition and present time on the relationship between Islamic theology and political order? What experiences can the Islamic tradition offer to deal with political order systems? How did and how do Qur’anic exegesis, Islamic law and Kalam for example deal with ruling systems?
