圖書名稱:Early Orientalism: Imagined Islam and the Notion of Sublime Power


A specialist in parallels in the image of Muslims and Jews in western Christian history, Kalmar (U. of Toronto) examines the early pedigree of Oriental despotism, a widely held belief even today in the west that Islamic civilization encourages undemocratic government. The political issue of despotic government is grounded in deep anxieties that go beyond politics and even the East-West relationship, he argues, and the notion of Oriental despotism helps ground western Christian theological concerns about divine power and unconditional faith, and existential concerns about the relationship between the human self and the universe.
