Times of History

Universal Topics in Islamic Historiography

This is a collection of essays on current questions of historiography, illustrated with reference to Islamic historiography. The main concerns are conceptions of time and temporality, the uses of the past, historical periodisation, historical categorisation, and the constitution of historical objects, not least those called "civilisation" and "Islam". One of the aims of the book is to apply to Islamic materials the standard conceptual equipment used in historical study, and to exercise a large-scale comparativist outlook.

About the Authors

Aziz al-Azmeh is Distinguished Professor at the Central European University, Budapest. 

Reviews

"This new book by the renowned intellectual historian Aziz al-Azmeh is a very unique and opportune contribution to scholarship on Islamic historiography.... This book is a critical evaluation of fundamental concepts in history, such as time, tradition and canon, and civilization. As such, [az-Azmeh's] approach is closer to those of Reinhart Koselleck, Norbert Elias or Quentin Skinner than it is to that of anyone else currently working in Islamic studies. This book is a sophisticated treatment of Islamic and European approaches to the history of Islam, and will prove to be intellectually engaging for anyone working on historiography in any geographical context."—History of the Human Sciences
