General Perspectives book
Islamic Law or Shari’ah is seen as being composed of an immutable core and an Ijtihadi outer substance. The core is the epistemology premised on Tawhid. With the coming of the information age mankind has entered an extensively interactive world-system. This world-system works at various levels. At the level of thought, it carries an epistemology of a process-oriented worldview, which Huxley foresaw to be the biological expression in his Brave New World. Whitehead referred to such a process view of reality in his Process and Reality. A new perspective of globalization based on jointly realizing social justice, distributive equity and economic growth must therefore be engendered. This is to arise from the common will of the global community, or failing this, by the grassroots in various nations. Social well-being would then be achieved by realizing complementarity between the social and economy ends.
