  1. I think Fraenkel was right, a Marxist may dismiss this book as the clash between religious and bourgeois ideologoies, a Nietzchean may call it as a disguise fight for domination, and a Freudian may find it as a manifestation of supressed desires However I think it is an interesting attempt to have a healthy debate between rationality and Islam Having said that, the author ignores real confrontation between religious doctrines, which go directly against the idea of social justice, gender equality [...]
