In the Lahore The News on Sunday, radicalizing Islamdom beginning from the "religious incoherence of Ghazali".
Islamdom has remained within the boundaries of religious dogma and liberal limits for a long time now. Let Islamdom transgress the epistemological boundaries of sacred and profane. Only by crossing over the boundaries of thought, we can explore new vistas of life and dimensions of religion because “a boundary is”, in the words of Martin Heidegger, “not that at something stops, but that from which something begins.” The act of crossing the boundaries will help in opening of new pathways for nomadic thought to emerge. Such a nomadic knowledge is in a better position than fixed ones to deploy hybridity in its epistemological posture. In the intellectual domain, the nomadic scholarship will help in destroying the fixity of ideologies of liberalism and Islamism, determinacy of epistemological structures, authority of scholarship and purity of guardians of liberal and puritan Islam.
The quote's on page 154 of this version of BDT (GA 7/PLT); "that from which something begins its presencing." [presencing = Wesen]. It should be a scandal in Heidegger studies that in 2018 we still don't have an English edition of Vorträge und Aufsätze. Who's going to translate Was heisst Denken? then? Leave it for the Tessier-Ashpool AI labs?
