Le Coran au risque de la psychanalyse (L'islam des lumières) by Olfa Youssef

By Olfa Youssef

On parle beaucoup aujourd'hui de « relire le Coran », de « réinterpréter le Coran », de « refuser certaines lectures extrémistes ». Derrière ces pétitions de principe, on trouve le postulat selon lequel il y aurait plusieurs lectures possibles du texte sacré des musulmans. Si cette idée n'est pas nouvelle - elle est présente depuis les débuts de l'islam -, rares sont ceux qui en ont exploré les conséquences à l. a. lumière des savoirs modernes. Olfa Youssef, universitaire spécialisée en linguistique, psychanalyste, et qui, en tant que femme maghrébine, a vécu au quotidien les conséquences des interprétations coraniques, emploie ici les outils de l. a. théorie du langage, de l. a. sémiologie et de los angeles psychanalyse pour mettre au jour les constructions linguistiques, sémiotiques et inconscientes du Coran et de ce que ses lecteurs y mettent d'eux-mêmes.
Une lecture post-moderne du texte qu'il est necessary de comprendre à notre époque.

By Ahmet Numan Cakilkum

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Orientalistik / Sinologie - Islamwissenschaft, word: 1,0, Universität Osnabrück (Institut für Islamische Theologie), Veranstaltung: Vertiefungsmodul kalām, Sprache: Deutsch, summary:
Die vorliegende Arbeit soll einen historischen sowie grob theologischen Einblick in den kalām darbieten. Zu Anfang begnügen wir uns mit einer dreistufigen Definition: linguistisch, thematisch und intensional. Danach folgt die historische Entstehung und Entwicklung des ʿilmu l-kalām in intensiver Anlehnung an die Geschichte der Muʿtazilah. Wichtig warfare dabei zu klären, welche Themen den Diskurs dieser Wissenschaft beherrschten und noch beherrschen und auch, weshalb diese ganz zu Anfang Eingang fanden. Hiermit wurde gleichwegs auch die Existenzberechtigung derselben bewiesen.

Da der historische Hintergrund aber meist markante Ideen einzelner Schulen zur Folge hatte, schien es sinnvoll beide, sowohl die Entstehung der jeweiligen Schule als auch ihre Lehren, gemeinsam aufzuführen. Bei den orthodoxen Schulen finden sich Tabellen mit wichtigen Persönlichkeiten und ihren zu dieser Wissenschaft verfassten Werke. Abschließend werden im Lichte der Abhandlung „Muḥaṣṣal“, jene, die dem osmanischen Großgelehrten Ibrāhīm Ḥaqqi Izmirli zugeschrieben wird, die neuen Herausforderungen des ʿilmu l-kalām festgestellt.

Dies ist eine sehr ausführliche Arbeit zur Entstehung und zum Dogma der einzelnen Theologieschulen des Islam. In der Arbeit wurde außerdem auf die Gelehrten der orthodoxen Schulen, al-Maturidiya und al-Ashariya, eingegangen und ihre Werke zum kalam tabellarisch aufgelistet.
