dc.description.abstractIn this limited work I have concentrated upon the task of presenting the living character of the Western impact upon Islamic culture, while integrating the presentation with my living thought, experience, intellectual reflection and assimilation. The ambitious task of breaking with the confining rigidity of specialisation, my relatively recent acquaintance with the language as well as the confining nature of official scholarship; have had their limiting influence upon the scope of my attempt. Writing on such an abstract level has painfully widened the gap between the demands of _ply thoughts, and my expressiveness in the English language with the result of enlarging the difficulty of exposition, occasionally disturbing the logical movement of argument, and imparting to the form of presentation considerable unease and apparent entanglement. If my keen and lively devotion to the subject has sustained my will to complete the work, and my courage to recognise it after completion; my impression of its final form has numbed my awareness of ending this academic task, and embarrassed my sense of relief.en
dc.description.abstractIn the first part of this work, I have applied my effort to characterise the ultimate conviction underlying the .conceptual structure of Islamic morality while in the second part the attempt has been made to characterise the impact of Western civilisation upon this structure and the resultant cultural antithesis. Although I have not been able to contribute satisfactorily towards the solution of the problem, or its systematic presentation, I feel that I have to some extent indicated its nature, underlining the principal features of the dilemma created by the varied manifestationsof the Western concept of freedom and progress.en
