One of the distinctions between the two paradigms of traditionalism and modernism is in their positions towards intellect. The traditionalism believes in the general intellect and the modernism believes in the partial intellect (ration). The most significant consequence of this paradigm (traditionalism) is the absolute acceptance of intellect and regarding it as self-sufficient and as a result, the denial of the mysteriousness of the universe.
The article deals with the shortcomings of the paradigm of modernism from the traditionalist’s perspective and makes us acquainted with their powerful and irreconcilable criticism against the modernistic intellect.
The author believes that the aspects of the epistemology of these two paradigms should be clarified for the Islamic addressees in order to be utilized in the dynamic discussions of the authentic Islam with the believers of the western modernity.
