Subjective Tensions, Flourishing, and Multidimensional Selves

(p.209) Coda
Caged in on the Outside

Gregory M. Simon

University of Hawai'i Press

Ultimately the accounts in the final chapter show how it is through grappling with and reflectively attempting to manage tensions—and not simply within the singular lines of discursive logic—that Islamic subjectivity, or moral subjectivity of any kind, emerges in people’s lives. The book’s coda thus suggests that this sort of reflection and work is inherent in moral life, as intrinsic to the subjectivity of human flourishing as it is to the subjectivity of dysfunction, subjugation, and suffering.
