Muslim imaginaries and imaginary muslims: Placing Islam in conversation with a secular age [Book Review]

Journal of Religious Ethics 40 (1):138-148 (2012)
This essay begins by exploring the extent to which the narrative of secularization presented in Charles Taylor's A Secular Age might be complicated or otherwise challenged by taking account of parallel processes within Islamic thought and practice. It then considers whether Taylor's argument might nevertheless be applicable to, or illuminative of, contemporary struggles with modernity in the Muslim world
