Islam, State, and Modernity: Mohammed Abed Al-Jabri and the Future of the Arab World is a new ARDD book, authored by Dr. Zaid Eyadat, Francesca Corrao, and Mohammed Hashas.

The Moroccan philosopher Mohammed Abed Al-Jabri (27 Dec. 1935 - 03 May 2010) has marked contemporary Arab and Islamic thought with his voluminous works of categorizing and systematizing the tradition. As one of the early postcolonial Arab philosophers, Al-Jabri raised critical issues that he considered existential for intellectual and political renewal in the region. Unlike apologetics, or rejectionists of the tradition, the neo-traditionalist, and neo-Averroist, opted for a mid-position to practice "critique" for renewal "from within."

Available at Palgrave Macmillan, it “offers the first comprehensive introduction to Moroccan philosopher and social theorist Mohammed Abed al-Jabri and his relevance to the “Arab Spring.”
