Islamic Political Philosophy

FLG is tempted to take this class even though he already took the The Theology of Islamic Politics, which he assumes covered largely the same ground and writers. A class, by the by, that led FLG to the conclusion that the political ideas of more than a few Islamic thinkers are a bit fucking nuts.

That's not quite fair. FLG does admire the Gulen movement a great deal. And he's generally amenable to the political ideas of Sufism, which basically is to remain distant from politics. Although, that oversimplifies the diversity of Sufist political thought.
