In H/Soz/Kult, Kata Moser Urs Gösken on Islamicate World.
Besides the rather scholarly interests of reading, translating, and teaching Heidegger’s philosophy, his thought is valued as a possible means to recontextualise what thinkers in the Islamicate world define as ‘their’ intellectual tradition, often including religion, as a meaningful manifestation of a metahistorical dimension of human being. The interest in the work of this particular thinker appears to be grounded in the conviction that the position it takes towards the conventions of intellectual tradition contributes to overcoming the aporias inherent in them.
I'm not sure how lay people are expected to differentiate between Islamic, Islamist, Islamicate. What's their parallax?
