Traditional Islamic Environmentalism : The Vision of Seyyed Hossein Nasr Paperback / softback
This work examines the relevance of traditional Islamic thought and practices for a lasting solution to the current environmental crisis.
Quadir describes how Seyyed Hossein Nasr challenges Muslims to reclaim their traditional intellectual and Sufi heritage as powerful means toward a most thoughtful approach to the crisis.
In so doing, Nasr urges us to take a critical look at the consequences of the worldviews generated by modern science and technology and offers bold solutions for a more caring relationship between man and nature.
The book argues that only a revival of the traditional worldview which perceives all entities of nature as signs of God can effectively respond to the crisis our planet faces.
