Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an interview conducted by Dale F. Eickelman who in 1996 met Muhammad Shahrur in Damascus to ask him about his personal and intellectual biography. Professor Eickelman was one of the first Western academics to discover the significance of Muhammad Shahrurs writings within the context of the emergence of a Muslim public space in the Arab and Islamic world. The interview took place at Dār al-Istishārāt al-Ḥandasiyya, the engineering firm in which Shahrur is a senior partner and where he does his writing. Professor Eickelman told me that the interview was conducted in a combination of English and Arabic, with the choice of language left to Muhammad Shahrur.

Keywords: Dār al-Istishārāt al-Ḥandasiyya; Dale F. Eickelman; Muhammad Shahrur
