Chapter: On the Muslim Question

Chapter: On the Muslim Question

Marking "Islam ... as the pre-eminent site of danger to politics": Anne Norton (University of Pennsylvania), "On the Muslim Question", in "Democracy, Religious Pluralism and the Liberal Dilemma of Accommodation", ed. Monica Mookherjee (Springer, January 2011: pp. 65-75).

Quote: "Marx’s essay 'On the Jewish Question' marks the Jew as the site where post-Enlightenment Europe confronted the spectre of theology in the question of citizenship. In our time, the figure of the Muslim has become the axis where questions of political philosophy and political theology, politics and ethics meet."
