“The Immanent Frame” recently published Tamir Moustafa’s reply to a forum on his book Constituting Religion: Islam, Liberal Rights, and the Malaysian State (Cambridge, 2018). In his reply, he outlines the ways in which the co-constitutive dynamics of law, religion, politics, and society are complex. Here is an excerpt of his reply:
I want to thank everyone who contributed to this forum, along with the editor of The Immanent Frame, Mona Oraby, who made all of this possible. It is an honor to have the sustained attention of so many impressive scholars from across so many different disciplines. From the start, this project was both exhilarating and humbling because the co-constitutive dynamics of law, religion, politics, and society are so complex. These essays—along with many conversations that I have had with many of the contributors over the years—have deepened my understanding and have helped me to see how this project is viewed from diverse disciplinary vantage points.
