The author deals with fundamental problems faced by contemporary Muslims and their real solutions, beginning with a discussion on the 'Contemporary Western Christian Background', followed by his analysis of the concepts (which he newly defines) of 'secular', 'secularization', and 'secularism'. He proceeds to analyze the Muslim dilemma by declaring that it should be resolved primarily through "dewesternization of knowledge" or conversely the "Islamization of contemporary knowledge."

Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas is the author of twenty-seven authoritative works on various aspects of Islamic thought and civilization, particularly on Sufism, cosmology, metaphysics, philosophy and Malay language and literature. Born on September 5, 1931 in Bogor, Java, he is a prominent contemporary Muslim thinker. He is equally competent in theology, philosophy, metaphysics, history, and literature. His thought is integrated, multifaceted and creative. Al-Attas’ philosophy and methodology of education have one goal: Islamization of the mind, body and soul and its effects on the personal and collective life on Muslims as well as others, including the spiritual and physical non-human environment.
