Abstract:Using the phrase 'neo-normative' to describe those Muslims who have consciously assumed the quest for an Islamic world view that is relevant to the modern world, the author discusses the ideas of the late Sayyid Qutb, one of the more popular and influential interpreters of the Qur'an - ideas which have been around for some time but which have particular relevance to the ferment which is taking place in the Muslim world today. Sayyid is the most noted advocate of the interpretation of Islam as revolution. App.: Qur'anic verses quoted in support of revolution. Notes.
