(UNESCO) The Different Aspects of Islamic Culture

A unique contribution to a better knowledge of Islamic civilization



"Since its creation, UNESCO has been highlighting the intellectual solidarity of humankind, the importance of knowledge and the value of diversity to build mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue.

Launched by UNESCO in 1977, this collection is the result of work undertaken over 40 years under the supervision of a scientific committee and the guidance of the pluralistic perspective defined for UNESCO’s General and Regional Histories (History of Humanity, General History of Africa, General History of the Caribbean, General History of Latin America and History of Civilizations of Central Asia).

It provides unique knowledge of the creative diversity and complexity of Islamic culture and highlights its fundamental contribution to the progress of humanity. As such, it constitutes a relevant tool to encourage and facilitate intercultural and interreligious dialogue. By bringing together diverse academic views on Islamic culture, it strongly contributes to the global debate on Islam and challenges many of the prejudices and misinterpretations."
