Un regard laïc sur l’histoire arabe (A secular look on Arab history)

Subject

Description

Recording of the lecture given by Jean-Pierre Filiu at the Lieu Unique on the 24th of March 2016.

News saturated with violence and a certain intellectual laziness leads too often to forget the depth of the historical convulsions which seize the Arab world. Yet, this crisis is a long-lasting one, of revolutionary-type, and it is the continuation of two centuries of struggle for collective liberation and individual emancipation.
Finding the historical dynamics is crucial to find a meaning where the accumulation of horrors causes depression and incomprehension, rejection and even hostility. Added to this is the Islamization of the Arabs in the French debate, Islamization rooted in a colonial past hasty to treat Arab people as Muslim ‘masses’. Breaking with this insidious Islamization is opening the way to a secular history of the Arab world.
