    Islamic Positivism and Scientific Truth: Qur’an and Archeology in a Creationist Documentary Film.Baudouin Dupret & Clémentine Gutron - 2016 - Human Studies 39 (4):621-643.
    The ambition of “scientific creationism” is to prove that science actually confirms religion. This is especially true in the case of Muslim creationism, which adopts a reasoning of a syllogistic type: divine revelation is truth; good science confirms truth; divine revelation is henceforth scientifically proven. Harun Yahya is a prominent Muslim “creationist” whose website hosts many texts and documentary films, among which “Evidence of the true faith in historical sources”. This is a small audiovisual production which, starting from some archeological (...)

    Error, Aberration, and Abnormality: Mental Disturbance as a Shift in Frameworks of Relevance.Baudouin Dupret & Louis Quéré - 2015 - Human Studies 38 (2):309-330.
    In general, in our ordinary life, we manage to make the difference between “strange” behavior and error or extravagant beliefs. The question is here to know how we do so, and against what background. There are also specialized contexts for evaluating whether certain types of behavior or discourse are normal or abnormal: courts of law and psychiatric hospitals are two examples. In these contexts, judgments are formed against a background of technical or scientific knowledge, but they also result from epistemic (...)

    Legal rules in practice: in the midst of law's life.Baudouin Dupret, Julie Colemans & Max Travers (eds.) - 2021 - New York, NY: Routledge.
    Understanding legal rules not as determinants of behavior but as points of reference for conduct, this volume considers the ways in which rules are invoked, referred to, interpreted, put forward, or blurred. It also asks how both legal practitioners and lay participants conceive of and participate in the construction of facts and rules, and thus, through decisions, defenses, pleas, files, evidence, interviews and documents, actively participate in law's life. With attention to the formulation of notions such as person, evidence, intention, (...)

    Positive Law From the Muslim World: Jurisprudence, History, Practices.Baudouin Dupret - 2021 - Cambridge University Press.
    Can the concept of law be indiscriminately extended to times and places in which it did simply not exist? Such an extension is at best useless and at worst misleading. Producing an intelligible jurisprudence of the concept of law means keeping it within the reasonable boundaries of its contemporary common-sense understanding: positive law. Parallel to Western societies in which it firstly emerged, the concept of positive law developed in many places, including countries characterized as Muslim. There, it faced other existing (...)

    What Is Islamic Law?Baudouin Dupret - 2007 - Theory, Culture and Society 24 (2):79-100.
    In this article, I first criticize commonly held assumptions about what Islamic law is. I suggest that it is at best useless and at worst wrong to start with a label like ‘Islamic law’ to describe something that is presumed to be an instance of such a label. I identify the source of confusion, i.e. the postulate that there must be a kind of genealogical continuity between what people refer to as Islamic law and Islamic law as it is found (...)
