This chapter explores the evolution of the sciences to understand better what this is going to entail as far as dealing with texts and establishing an Islamic ethics is concerned. It argues that we have reached limits that prevent contemporary Islamic thought from moving forward and thus in facing the challenges of our time as it should. It proposes new geography of the sources of law that entails shifting the center of gravity of religious and legal authority in contemporary Muslim societies and communities.
