Buku pertama yg bikin kepala terasa jungkir balik ^ ^
pertama kali baca buku ini pas kelas 5 SD. masa-masa dimana masih menganggap Enid Blyton adalah pengarang terkeren di dunia. masih dimabuk petualangan ala trio detektif, 5 sekawan, sapta siaga, dkk. Jadi pas baca buku ini... he... he...

Lagipula saat itu belum tau apa yang dimaskud dg Tao. pokoknya seperti berbau China gituh. dan dibaca itu pun karena warna covernya yang merah menyala :D

Baru dibaca ulang pas kelas 1 SMA. dan bukunya sangat bagu

Not only explaining about gender symmetry in Islam, Murata also explains Taoism quite extensively. I've read this book twice already. It's definitely worth having.

Sebuah buku yang coba mengangkat kembali tradisi hikmah dalam khazanah intelektual muslim, di sini penulis mencoba mengangkat kembali ajaran kuno mengenai Taoisme yang tertinggal dalam jejak Al-Quran. Sangat baik untuk para pengkaji gender (terutama kaum feminis muslim), karena disini menurut saya coba memberikan bedah alternatif ayat-ayat Quran melalui tradisi hikmah dan simbolisme puitik. Cocok juga untuk kaum spiritualis yang selalu saja berseberangan dengan kaum fuqaha (tradisi fiqh)

if you want to be understand about alternative view in gender relation in Islam you must read this book. this is a very--very--very good books for that reason. we can explore new view about cosmos constelation of micro cosmos as woman and macro cosmos as male. Sachiko Murata give me picture about gender in relate with view about yin and yang, in China cosmology. true book about the great of gender in Islam.

This book is great. Man to woman relation is viewed by cosmic perspective of Islamic philosophy. It's a guide book to view man to woman relation in a beautiful way. Not antagonistic as how feminism of the west has taught us.

Anyway, i'm searching this book. For those who have a copy of this back, please inform me solstance@gmail.com. I hope i can photocopy it for i really need it.

It is a taoistic philosophy, a yin and a yan, to be matched to Islamic philosophy, to verify how gender to be viwed in Islam. In this point, we can see that none male nor female is more powerful. They look equal. A nice work of Murata.

The Prophet's Path, the way of love
Only by this love you'll rise above
Like a dove that been set free
Love with longing is the key
