The Tao of Islam
By Sachiko Murata

A sourcebook on gender relationships in Islamic thought

The Tao of Islam is a rich and diverse anthology of Islamic teachings on the nature of the relationships between God and the world, the world and the human being, and the human being and God. Focusing on gender symbolism, Sachiko Murata shows that Muslim authors frequently analyze the divine reality and its connections with the cosmic and human domains with a view toward a complementarity or polarity of principles that is analogous to the Chinese idea of yin/yang.

"It clearly, competently, and comprehensively describes the worldview implicit in the medieval Islamic 'wisdom' tradition represented by Sufism and Shi'i philosophy, particularly the way that gender concepts are implicit in their cosmology and psychology, and can be related to the Taoist concepts of yin and yang. The author's critique of feminism and modern reformism on this basis is penetrating."
-Valerie Hoffman-Ladd, University of Illinois
