Description:

The paper summarizes two articles about Islam and Modernity: "The Cultural Dialectic" by I. William Zartman and "Culture Talk; Or How Not to Talk About Islam and Politics" by Mahmood Mamdani. The paper
examines how the authors answer the basic argument that is presented. The conclusion is that Islamic countries are modern, but are following a different path to modernity.

From the Paper:

"The concept of modernity in Islamic countries is very controversial. Some researchers have tried to portray Islamic countries as backwards and primitive. While other researchers have suggested that Islamic countries are just as modern as other countries they have just been developing in a different way. The articles that will be examined in this paper are both from authors who believe that Islamic countries are just as modern as other countries. The articles are Democracy and Islam: The Cultural Dialectic by I. William Zartman and Culture Talk; Or How Not to Talk About Islam and Politics Mahmood Mamdani."
