The reform presented in the course of this book must begin with reconciliation with the texts, their meaning, and their higher goals considered in history and in various human societies. There is a need to reconcile with an Islamic universality whose essence is pluralistic. Confirming its universality means engaging a twofold movement that consists in determined self-assertion allied to confident opening up to all civilizations and religions, but also to the different subjects of thought that were long considered dangerous precisely because of fears about dilution or transgressions against the text. This chapter discusses these in terms of areas such as philosophy, mysticism, and interfaith dialogue.
