THE NEW THEOLOGY OF HASSAN HANAFI: ISSUES IN THE METHOD
This study aims to show the method adopted by Hassan Hanafi to produce the new theology. Hanafi can be considered one of the most interested Arab thinkers in theology, where he wrote an important book in this section entitled: “From the Creed to the Revolution” in five volumes, that falls within the Heritage Series and the New chapter on explaining the position on the old heritage. In addition to many scientific articles and intellectual dialogues in which he, may God have mercy on him, clearly explained his vision to produce the new theology. It was confined to a statement of the methodological aspect of the the method for its importance in building science. The establishment and development of science can only be in a correct way, under which the scattered facts and scattered vocabulary are folded, to explain the links or relationships that may exist between them, regulated by specific laws. The progress and delay of science depend on the issue of the methodology, which revolves with it existence and non-existence, and therefore it can be said that the methodology preserves for science its order and consistency, as it controls the human mind and mental actions, with fixed rules, so that it helps Man reach the truth in the topics he studies.
