Islam and the West: A New Perspective on the Era of Crises
The West grew up under the shadow of Islam, and then after the Renaissance, in a dramatic reversal of roles, the West became world conquerors and subdued all other cultures and civilizations, including Islam. Humanity, despite the scientific progress, technological development, and economic growth, is experiencing multiple crises that are threatening our very existence. This advancement did not stop the financial, social, and political instability, neither the alarming growth of physical and mental illnesses, or reduced the threat of nuclear annihilation and the climate change. At the time the world is witnessing a dangerous escalation in the polarization between Islam and the West, this thought-provoking book, invites readers to view the crises they are facing and the tangled relationship between Islam and the West through a different lens. Keeler proposes that the true standard for measuring success should be the balance achieved between the spiritual, social, and material needs of humanity; a balance which makes it possible to live in harmony with nature. When the world is viewed from this perspective, a completely different picture of Islam and the West emerges.
