Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[Autom. eng. transl.] From the self-proclamation of the Islamic State, a debate has ever rekindled in Egypt, never completely dormant, on Islam and its role in society and in the State. While al-Sisi asks - not without ulterior motives - for a "religious revolution", for al-Azhar there is a need for a correction of the interpretations adopted by extremists and terrorists. Some intellectuals, even from different fronts, put forward bolder proposals for the revaluation of reason and radical revision of the traditional methodology of Islamic law.
