Study on the Works of Abd al-Wahhab al-Masiri

Researcher Dr. Ghazlan Hashimi delves into the works of Egyptian thinker Abd al-Wahhab al-Masiri (1938-2008) in her study "Abd al-Wahhab al-Masiri: From Dismantling Centralities to Establishing Islamic Modernity.. A Reading of Boundaries and Achievements". Released by Dar Ilyaa for Publishing and Distribution in Algeria, the book investigates the idea of bias in Masiri's works, reflecting the ideological view of the other and their desire for dominance.

The research aims to scrutinize Masiri's intellectual project, his contributions, intellectual and critical references. Hashimi points out that Masiri effectively used deconstructive data in approaching intellectual texts, yet he couldn't liberate himself from Western reference, employing Western methodological tools in his various readings of the Western and Zionist mind. The book is structured into four chapters with titles such as "The Issue of Bias from Abd al-Wahhab al-Masiri's Perspective", "Human Constants in Abd al-Wahhab al-Masiri's Critical and Literary Reading", "Identity Discourse in Abd al-Wahhab al-Masiri's Writings", and "Abd al-Wahhab al-Masiri: Methodology, Analytical Tools, and Intellectual Transformations".

Dr. Ghazlan Hashimi, the book's author, is a critic and lecturer in the Arabic Language and Literature Department at the University Mohammed Cherif Messaadia in Souk Ahras, Algeria, and heads the Department of Literary and Intellectual Studies at the GIL Scientific Research Center, as well as the editor-in-chief of the international journal "GIL of Literary and Intellectual Studies".
