Abstract

This article is an attempt to expose the idea of, or possibility to reclaim, Indonesian philosophy, but it is not the intention of this article to go into a detailed reading of particular works. It aims at offering a modest proposal, or an outline, sketching many possibilities of reading Indonesian works. It deals with a daunting question often posed by Indonesian students and scholars whether Indonesia can produce a philosopher or philosophical works. This article starts with addressing the question and looks for possible answers through classical Indonesian works not only from writing tradition but also material cultures, such as architectural works. It argues that Indonesian works are materials and sources worth rereading and reinterpreting through which Indonesian philosophers or philosophical works can be reclaimed, or at least unearthed. Although these works may not sound philosophical, the ways in which readers appreciate them can lead to the discovery of a unique Indonesian philosophy. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.20414/ujis.v20i1.826

Abstract

This article explains the concept of waḥdah al-wujūd and its relevance to the diversity of religions and beliefs. The idea of the unity of being developed by Ibn ʽArabī is an explanation about the existence of every entity which prevails in the universe. It means that nothing has essential substance except God. Therefore, all things that exist in the universe, including the diversity of religions and the pluralistic paths of faith, are rooted in God. The diversity of God’s laws occurs only due to the diversity of the doctrines revealed to the different prophets and apostles. So, Ibn ʽArabī, who has the typical philosophical thought of Sufism manifested through waḥdah al-wujūd, is considered as the supporter of the idea about the unity of religions emphasizing the inner aspect and the qualities of faith. This idea will tighten the relationship among those who love each other "within" God. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.20414/ujis.v20i1.793

Abstract

One of the most prevalent critics of correspondence theory of truth is the scope it contains. The objection is that the proponents of this theory could solely apply their theory of truth to some limited domain−which has something to correspond to− like science, but they would fail for other domain− which has no something to correspond to− like morality. In this study, I aim to defend the theory of correspondence by considering the concept of nafs al-amr advanced by ‘Allāmah Ṭabāṭabā’ī as a basis to which every proposition reaches its correspondence. As a realist, ‘Allāmah Ṭabāṭabā’ī whose view holds the fundamentality of existence, excludes everything other than existence. Hence, in his epistemology every proposition would correspond to reality if and only if it refers to the existence. He notices that human concepts which will eventually form a proposition unveil some different parts of reality. They occasionally indicate something external, like table, something internal, like logical concepts, even something non-existential, like nothingness. The concept of nafs al-amr as subsistence in general includes the subsistence of every concept and serves as an ontological basis to which a proposition gets its correspondence.

Abstract

One of the thinkers on religion in Islamic philosophical discourse is Abū al-Ḥasan Muḥammad bin Yūsuf al-‘Āmirī (d. 381/933). His thoughts, written in al-i‘lām bi manāqib al-Islām as magnum opus for his intellectual carrier, have been identified as an ideal prototype of classical and rational religious studies. Before exploring the principles of religions, his first step was that he introduced the importance of knowledge of milliya or religiosities’ perspective for reading phenomena of religion. Apologetical-reflective was the common method used by al-‘Āmirī to read Islam and other religions. This method does not intend to disrespect or wrong other religions but it is as a tool to identify identity as well as distinguish Islam from other religions. However, al-‘Āmirī realised that epistemological, historic, or praxis problems in religion facts, including Islam, become homework for the next generation.

Al-Gazālī’s Critique against the Muslim Philosophers in Tahāfut Al-Falāsifah Aini, Qurratul

Abstract

This article discusses al-Gazālī’s critiques in his Tahāfut al-Falāsifah against the Muslim. It answers two main questions: First, what is the purpose of al-Gazālī in writing Tahāfut al-Falāsifah? Second, is it true that this work represent the conflict between philosophy and dogma, between revelation and the ratio, or between orthodoxy and hetherodoxy? Content analysis and historical method are used to elucidate the criticism of al-Gazālī against the Muslim philosophers in Tahāfut al-Falāsifah. This study shows that instead of questioning the validity of logic on philosophical reasoning and methodology, al-Gazālī wrote Tahāfut al-Falāsifah in order to contest epistemological philosophical superiority claims advanced by Muslim philosophers. The critism of al-Gazālī cannot be seen as a reaction, or let alone rejection, of orthodoxy or dogma against the philosophy. Rather, his critical thought should be viewed as his attempt as a Muslim scholar to accept and adapt Greek philosophical tradition into the framework of Islamic thought.

Abstract

Farid Esack is an Islamic thinker from South Africa who proposes Liberation hermeneutics in comprehending the Qur’an from the perspective of Liberation Theology to realize justice. This article examines Esack’s hermeneutical method in interpreting Qur’an and analyses how he applies the spirit of liberation and justice as principles of Liberation Theology in his interpretation. This study shows that Esack’s hermeneutics differs from others because, as a liberation theologian, he puts liberative-praxis as the main objective of his liberation theology. His method does not only revolve around textual understanding but also push practical implication. He moves forward from praxis (experience) to texts and then goes back to experience. To him, interpretation must be able to encourage changes within society. Therefore, as the second feature of this method, in Esack’s hermeneutics, interpretation is not just scholarly speculative exercise which has no implication. It has a specific aim, namely is to establish a better life for society in which justice is a fundamental prerequisite. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.20414/ujis.v20i1.822

Abstract

The western philosophers like Karl Marx believe that society is ontologically understood in terms of physical dimension only while the Muslim philosophers such as al-Fārābī, Nasīr al-Dīn al-Tūsī, Ibn Khaldūn and Murtaḍā Muṭahharī argue that it consists of physical and metaphysical or spiritual aspects. The structure of a society along with its development and orientation can be seen and explained by its physical and metaphysical aspects. Moreover, the perfection of a society is not only based on the fulfilment of its physical needs but also on the establishment of intellectual and spiritual needs. This article aims to discuss society through Islamic philosophy’s perspective with the elaboration of social science, the reality of a society, the structure of an ideal society and its development and orientation.

Abstract

The decline of Islamic science is seen as impacts of al-Gazālī’s criticism to philosophy and controversy surrounding the thought of al-Gazālī and Ibn Rushd. During the Golden Age in the medieval period, Muslim scholars and philosophers had been the world references for science and technology development. They lost this legacy because they embraced orthodoxy rather than rationality. Al-Gazālī had written a book called Tahāfut al-Falāsifah (The Collapse or Inconsistence of the Philosophers) which criticised Islamic philosophers especially Ibn Sīnā and Al-Fārābī. Later after the death of al-Gazālī, Ibn Rushd wrote book tahāfut al-tahāfut which commented on al-Gazālī’s book Tahāfut al-falāsifah. It was arguing over Muslims should advance in science and technology in this modern era as it was evident during the Golden Age Islamic Era (the 7th up to the 13th centuries) whereby Muslims were the world references in science and technology development. However, after the period Muslims abandoned rationality and have remained so up to the present. This situation caused Islamic thoughts to move from rationality to orthodoxy. Al-Gazālī has been considered as the cause of the decline in Islamic Thought as he critiqued Islamic philosophers especially Ibn Sīnā and al-Fārābī in his book Tahāfut al-Falāsifah. Later Ibn Rushd wrote book Tahāfut al-Tahāfut which commented on al-Gazālī’s book Tahāfut al-Falāsifah. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.20414/ujis.v20i1.804
Khaleed Abou el Fadl's Hermeneutic: A Newly Proposed Insight to Review Ibnu Rushd’s Theory of Despotic Interpretation of The Qur’an Muzayyin, Muhammad

Abstract

This paper examines Ibn Rushd’s theory of interpretation of the Qur’an by using a new methodology of hermeneutic developed by Khaleed Abou El Fadl. He proposes a theory of ‘negotiating hermeneutic’, in his work Speaking in The God’s Name: Islamic Law, Authority, and Womans. This theory advances the role of text (the Qur’an and hadith), authors (mufti, interpreter, special agent), and readers (Muslim society, common agent) in determining the objective of an authoritative text. These are three elements that must work together to determine meanings. Abou El Fadl’s hermeneutic theory develops the idea of autonomous and open texts. Therefore, the interpretation of the text does not always focus on locating the author’s desired intent. Building on El Fadl’s theory, the study aims to review Ibn Rushd’s authoritarian interpretation, which tends to push away any other understanding which is opposite to an interpreter’s ideology. Hence, this theory is contrary to another theory which states that there are no authoritative figures who can objectively understand the Qur’an. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.20414/ujis.v20i1.534
