Course Description : The course is a journey throughout Arab Modern Political Thought, starting from the end of the 18th century and until the post-1967 War period, with a special stress on the aspects of modernity within the Arab intellectual production. The main goal of the course is to study aspects of modernization of political, social and religious thought, through studying a very rich production that goes from the description of Napoleon Bonaparte's expedition to Egypt to the essays produced during the contemporary era to criticize the Arab Reason or the Islamic Reason. Our point is not to cover this production as a whole, but to analyze the most important concepts through encounters with the most famous authors and the writings/discourses they left. How did Arabs approach political modernity, what did Islam become in the discourse of the most inﬂuent thinkers of the era, what were the most important issues that were tackled between the end of the XVIIIth century and until the 1980s/1990s ?
