Arkoun’s Thought of Humanity: A New Bridging Toward Islamic and Western Civilization
Muhammad Azhar
 
Abstract: Arkoun’s humanistic thought is essentially very close to the epistemoloogical basis of his Islamic thought that is “Applied” Islamology, assuming a deconstruction of Islamic thought; an effort to compare between legacy of Islamic and Western thought, in separating from logocentrism of classical Islamic thought to contemporary Islamic epistemology through an effort to implement semiotics and social sciences. Based on the paradigm of the Applied Islamology, an idea that can be derived from Arcoun’s as a core of this study is its implication in the field of Islamic humanity ethics. From this study, the writer finds out the urgency of mutual relation between Islamic and Western in humanity issues, in which religious values can appear as its content. This research will using the heremeneutic approach according to the Paul Ricouer’s mode of thought.
