After having successfully conducted three Summer School Programs, such as “Change in the Islamic World in the 21st century,’’, “State and Society in the Islamic World,”’ and ‘”Social Justice and Poverty in the Islamic World,” in the past years, the main theme of this year’s 4th ILEM International Summer School will be “Reproducing Thought in the Islamic World: Methodological Approaches.”

Muslims are living in an era of an intellectual crisis. In order to be freed from this crisis, the Muslim world is investigating the possibilities of reconnecting with the tradition of Islamic thought and science and the betterment of this tradition. This effort brings with itself the question of which methodology should be followed when putting the accumulation of Islamic thought into circulation.

In this framework, with the “Reproducing Thought in the Islamic World: Methodological Approaches’’ theme, topics of Islamic politics, economics, philosophy of Islam, and reconstruction of Islamic society will be addressed. Rather than approaching Islamic science merely as historic data, the possibility of reinterpreting Islamic tradition and its synthesis will be examined according to the economic, political and social conditions in which modern Muslims live.

Conferences, seminars, lectures, and workshops will be held in Istanbul July 3-9. With these workshops, the aim is to produce a common procedure and methodology for the process of reinterpreting Islamic thought, and a projection of how to assess current Islamic intellectual accumulation. The problems with reproduction of Islamic thought will be discussed by academics coming from disciplines of politics, economics, philosophy, law, theology, sociology, and so on.
