Islam in a Post-Secular Society
Religion, Secularity and the Antagonism of Recalcitrant Faith
Byrd uses Critical Theory to reject the ‘clash-of-civilizations’ thesis, and compellingly argue for the compatibility of Islam and secularism.
This provocative and important book critically examines the challenges facing Muslims in Europe and North America. Byrd uses the philosophical perspective of the Frankfurt School’s Critical theory to both diagnose the current problems stemming from Islam’s marginalization in the secular West, and to propose a Habermasian discourse between the religious and the secular.
