Islamic View of Nature and Values: Could These Be the Answer to Building Bridges between Modern Science and Islamic Science
Faruqi, Yasmeen Mahnaz
International Education Journal, v8 n2 p461-469 Nov 2007
This paper discusses the basic tenets of Islam and the Islamic view of nature that were influential in the development of science in the so-called "Golden Age of Islam". These findings have been the catalyst for present day Muslim scholars, who have emphasized the importance of Islamic science, as the means of understanding Western science. There is also a strong body of opinion within researchers of Islamic science that the abandonment of Islamic values and the rapid adoption of Western science and technologies have led to conflict in social, educational and scientific fields in Islamic countries. The article examines how these two views can be reconciled in order to build bridges between modern science and Islamic science. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
