Mohammad Mojtahed Shabestari. Can there be such a thing as Islamic human rights? Do the commandments set forth in the Koran ha Do the commandments set forth in the Koran have eternal validity, or can they be modified according to the demands of reason? Iranian clergyman Mohammad Shabestari has devoted his life to exploring these issues in modern religious and political Islamic thinking. By Roman Seidel. E'temad-e Melli Mehr , Oct 9, An analytical Analysis. The aim of this workshop is twofold: first, we are interested in discussing comparison as a metho Second, we put a thematic focus on time and temporality.
This focus is not coincidental because not only are time and its manifold conceptualisations relevant as an object of comparison but they also play a constitutive role in setting up the coordinates of comparisons. Reflecting upon comparison through notions of time is therefore, on the one hand, a useful way to politicise and mark comparison as a particular practice.
On the other hand, discussions of time and temporality might help to envision different practices of comparison that enable an alternative transregional perspective while avoiding Eurocentric frames of comparison.
Philosophy is a vital component of present-day intellectual and academic discourse in the Middle Yet Western publics and scholars often assume that philosophy as an intellectual endeavour in the Muslim world ended in the twelfth century with the philosopher and polymath Averroes. As a counterpoint to this, this lecture series highlights the liveliness and complexity of contemporary philosophical debates in the Middle East and Muslim South Asia. In doing so, the lectures will reveal, first, how these contemporary debates form part of a continuous tradition of philosophy in the Muslim world.
Second, the lecture series draws attention to how modern Muslim philosophers re-read their Islamic intellectual heritage while appropriating elements of modern Western philosophy. As such, this lecture series — by considering both systematic and historical perspectives — is designed to speak to anyone engaged with contemporary philosophical discourses in a transregional frame.
The study of Philosophy in the Middle East appears to still suffer from a too-strong distinction This paper argues that both sides would mutually benefit if they would consider the results of the other more systematically.
The idea of bringing these approaches together in a sophisticated way is not an easy but, as I am convinced, a promising methodological manoeuvre. The challenge lies in the fact that — at least when comparative philosophy is understood as a systematic method, rather than a historical one — both approaches are often regarded as mutually exclusive.

Incidentally this was the same teacher who also let us read The Catcher in the Rye. Now I have learned that there is an uncut and uncensored edition of Fabian available: The edition from Atrium. Although the first edition is already very good, I must say that this "naked" version is still a lot sharper.
Sharper with regard to the mention of sexual practices and sharper in the political statement. The book was written and the story is set in Berlin around Jakob Fabian is a graduate in German studies, and earns his living as an adman in a cigarette factory called a "propagandist" in the book.
He lives for rent in a single furnished room—money is available but scarce. For certain reasons Fabian loses his job and has to join the vast ranks of the unemployed. Fabian's best and only friend is Stephan Labude, who, after five years, finally submitted his habilitation dissertation about Lessing. Fabian and Labude are doing pub tours, crack jokes, visit music halls.
In an artist's studio Fabian meets a young woman, Cornelia Battenberg, and gets to know and finally love her. Der Autor weist wiederholt auf die anatomische Verschiedenheit der Geschlechter hin. Er deutet wiederholt jenen Vorgang an, den man, temperamentloserweise, Beischlaf nennt. Der Autor erwidert hierauf: Ich bin ein Moralist!
The author repeatedly points out the anatomical difference between the sexes. He lets completely naked ladies and other women walk around in different chapters. He insinuates, repeatedly, the process spiritlessly called coitus.

He does not even hesitate to mention abnormal varieties of sexual life. He refrains from anything that could cause the censors to remark: This man is a dirty pig. To this the author replies: I am a moralist! Dieses Buch nun hat keine Handlung. Es wird nichts wiedergefunden. Now this book has no plot. Except for one, an employment endowed with two hundred and seventy marks a month, nothing gets lost.
No wallet, no pearl necklace, no memory, or whatever else gets lost in the beginning of stories and is found again, to the general satisfaction, in the last chapter. Nothing is found. The author considers the novel by no means an amorphous genre, and yet he has not used, here and this time, the bricks for building. One might almost suspect that this was done on purpose. I see more of an imminent danger of a civil war and the related total dissolution of civilization.
Also the Berlin of the Weimar period, which is alternatively referred to in the book as a madhouse, Sodom and Gomorrah, den of iniquity, or men's brothel reminds me of the decadent Rome shortly before its demise. Stylistically, this book is a farce, a caricature.
