The course is a continuation of Islamic Civilizations 145a but may be taken independently. It explores the thought of some of the major Islamic philosophers and theologians in the 19th and 20th centuries: Muhammad Abduh, Muhammad Iqbal, Said Nursi, Abu l-Ala Maududi, Sayyid Qutb, Ali Shariati, Murtaza Mutahheri and AbdolKarim Soroush.

Offered alternate years with Islamic Civilizations 145a. Though the two courses can be taken in either order, 145a covers the 8th-17th centuries and 145b covers the 19th-20th centuries. Offered jointly with the Divinity School as 3602b.
