Alija Izetbegović
“These countries formally achieved independence ,but they didn't achieve real freedom, since freedom of any kind is primarily spiritual.the independence of a people which has not first won this is soon reduced to an anthem and a flag , two very minor factors for true independence”
Alija Izetbegović, The Islamic Declaration

Hannah Arendt
“Thought and cognition are not the same. Thought, the source of art works, is manifest without transformation or transfiguration in all great philosophy, whereas the chief manifestation of the cognitive processes, by which we acquire and store up knowledge, is the sciences. Cognition always pursues a definite aim, which can be set by practical considerations as well as by “idle curiosity”; but once this aim is reached, the cognitive process has come to an end. Thought, on the contrary, has neither an end nor an aim outside itself, and it does not even produce results; not only the utilitarian philosophy of homo faber but also the men of action and the lovers of results in the sciences have never tired of pointing out how entirely “useless” thought is—as useless, indeed, as the works of art it inspires.”
Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition

Antonio Gramsci
“The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned. I’m a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.”
Antonio Gramsci

ابن رشد
“الناس على ثلاثة أصناف : صنف ليس هو من أهل التأويل وهم الخطابيون الذين هم الجمهور الغالب , وصنف هو من أهل التأويل الجدلى وهم الجدليون بالطبع أو بالطبع والعادة . وصنف هو من أهل التأويل اليقينى وهؤلاء هم البرهانيون بالطبع والصناعة , أعنى : صناعة الحكمة”
ابن رشد, فصل المقال فيما بين الحكمة والشريعة من الاتصال

“Empirical" knowledge itself is of little benefit unless it awakens the inner perception of man as to his own situation, his potentialities, his risks, and his destiny”
Fazlur Rahman, Major Themes of the Qur'an
