Summary

What does it mean to be modern? This study regards the idea of society as most fundamental to the modern self-understanding. This idea crystallized in the concept of ‘society’ but may, partially, also be expressed by related concepts. Identifying Arabic conceptualizations of the idea of society in the journal al-Manar, the mouthpiece of Islamic Modernism, the author shows how modernity was articulated from within an Islamic discursive tradition.
