Sarajevo Essays: Politics, Ideology, and Tradition

Предња корица
SUNY Press, 01.02.2012. - 300 страница
One of Bosnia s leading intellectuals explains the Bosnian experience by critiquing the politics and ideology that brought about the great destruction both material and spiritual of Bosnia and Herzegovina. These incisive and theologically profound essays address the confrontation between the West and Islam as the author explores the realm of humanity s long-standing search for the roots of evil in the dual nature of mankind to gain insight into ways of achieving peace. By drawing on the Bosnian situation, the author explores questions of identity and otherness, knowledge and transcendence, authority and authoritarianism, and tradition and fundamentalism, and he argues for a reconciliation between modernity and tradition for the benefit of modern coexistence, not just in his native land but throughout the world.
