    Religious reform, Christian democracy and political Islam - comparisons, debate and prospection

    Comparaisons, débat et prospection

    Cette année coïncide avec le cinquième centenaire du mouvement religieux réformateur (octobre 1517-octobre 2017) initié en Europe par le théologien allemand Martin Luther et qui avait eu progressivement un important impact en dehors de son pays d’origine. Pourtant, quelques siècles après, ces reformes accompagnées par de multiples changements, restent d’une grande  actualité. Le monde arabo-musulman a connu lui aussi d’importantes expériences initiées par des mouvements réformateurs et ce depuis la fin du 18ème siècle. Dans le sillage de ces efforts réformistes, sont nés des mouvements (groupes) politiques qui se considèrent comme étant un prolongement de cet héritage réformiste et qu’ils essaient, dans un effort de se constituer une légitimité, de le mobiliser  et de se l’approprier.

    Philosophical Hermeneutics in the Islamicate Context

    This conference would like to engage with one specific context among all those which were and still are, as it were, “affected” by philosophical hermeneutics: the Islamicate context. The latter seems particularly relevant: on the one hand because it is intimately intertwined with the Western context; on the other hand because the Islamicate context retains a clear reference to religion that makes its entanglement with philosophical hermeneutics a burning challenge for all parties involved. The universality of the hermeneutic order should be put to the test of the Islamicate context within three different angles: the exegetical aspect, in order to see in what extend philosophical hermeneutics can contribute to rethink the understanding of the Koran in the contemporary context; the interpretative aspect, to address different contemporary attempts to reinterpret the classical – philosophical, spiritual or legal – heritage; the critical aspect, to present different political and critical issues raised by the question of the encounter between philosophical hermeneutics and Islamic thought.

The universality of the hermeneutic order should be put to the test of the Islamicate context within three different angles: the interpretative dimension, to address contemporary thinkers from the Islamicate world who have engaged with philosophical hermeneutics; the comparative dimension, in order to deal with possible transactions on the basis of common traits and divergences; and the creative dimension, to present attempts at using philosophical hermeneutics in order to develop new interpretations of canonical or traditional ensembles of texts.

    "Iǧtihād" and "taqlīd" in Sunni and Shiite Islam

    L'histoire de la pensée musulmane montre que la relation entre le taqlīd et l’iǧtihād est complexe. Le dossier de ce MIDÉO se propose d’approfondir les deux logiques à la lumière du patrimoine islamique. Les contributions pourront souligner les discours théologiques de légitimité ou de réfutation, mais aussi leur articulation. Au-delà de la rivalité entre les deux logiques, il conviendra de vérifier si l’on reste bien dans un continuum, et de vérifier que si les perspectives hégémoniques sont rivales, elles ne sont pas incompatibles.
