The Islamist Challenge to the Western View of the Human Social Order: Contemporary Islamism, with Reference to Sayyed Qutb

Stimulus: The New Zealand Journal of Christian Thought and Practice
Volume 15 Issue 2 (May 2007)

Abstract: The world has been nurtured on a view of history that takes it for granted that the West has always enjoyed a cultural superiority. The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries assumed that the whole world, led by the West, was on an inevitable march of progress. This was accompanied by an attempt to justify colonial practices in traditional Islamic, as well as many other lands, New Zealand included. Increasingly, however, both the wellbeing of the western world, and its colonial influence, has come under scrutiny everywhere. This is particularly true of the Islamic world. For this and many other reasons most Muslims have quite a different perception of the history of the relationship between Islam and the West.
