About this item

Islamic education has undergone a renaissance of sorts, due to recent social and political movements in the Middle East and a focus on Muslim society more generally. The rise in literature on the matter provides new perspectives on ethics, secularization, power relations, child psychology, multiculturalism, interfaith dialogue and moral education. However, much of this literature pushes a specific ‘philosophy’ of education which further marginalizes its position both within and outside of traditional educational studies. This volume reflects the diverse and often competing notions of Islamic education and its implications for contemporary discourse.

Investigating the philosophy, worldviews, pedagogy, and institutions of Islamic education,this volume represents a unique collaboration from world leading academics and practitioners in the field. It borrows from theology, philosophy, history, psychology, sociology and educational studies to examine perennial debates in the field of education. Without advocating ‘one’ vision of Islamic education, the volume echoes the neglected and marginalized voices in the field and makes a lasting contribution to Islamic and interfaith studies.
