Abstract

Most of the literature on the idea of a clash of civilization between the West and Islam has either rejected or embraced this thesis by focusing on the alleged compatibility or incompatibility of Islam with Western liberal and secular values. In On the Muslim Question, Anne Norton advances a more original perspective: The controversies surrounding Islam in the West and the idea of a clash of civilization are not a product of Islam’s democratic deficit, problematic idea of equality or lack of secularity, but the expression of tensions, contradictions and anxieties at the core of Western civilization.
