The Thoughts of Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Bassam Tibi and Tariq Ramadan

Situating Islam among Modernisms
The purpose of this chapter is to develop an analytical framework for the conceptualization of religion in relation to modernism. I shall seek, first, to delineate and differentiate the concepts of the Enlightenment, modernity and modernism, and then to study the position of religion in the modern world. I identify and characterize three main trends, namely, the radical, counter- and moderate trends of religion corresponding to modernism. The purpose of doing this is to justify a pluralistic view of religion as an analytical framework for examining the situation of Islam in the West and comparing the thinking of Nasr, Tibi and Ramadan studied in the following chapters.
