Welcome to the Modern World Wiki. Dedicated to understanding the world around us.
This wiki is a community-edited encyclopedia with 3 broad categories of articles: concepts, people and books.
- Concepts: definitions and histories of various concepts related to modernity such as liberalism, secularism, etc.
- People: biographies of writers or political leaders whose works are relevant to the above topics, in general or especially as they relate to Islam.
- Books: descriptions and summaries of some of the most relevant books.
While this wiki is a Muslim-led project, we welcome contributions by people of all backgrounds. Our goal is for anyone to be able to understand the topics that are discussed without needing to read hundreds of academic books. In addition, we hope to serve as a resource hub for anyone who wants to learn about the topics in-depth.
This wiki uses the MediaWiki software. Consult the MediaWiki User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
Pages in this wiki
Check out the Contribution Guide for a list of articles to work on. Add them here when you're done! Also, just because an article is listed below, that doesn't mean it's complete - pretty much any article in this wiki could use improvements, additions, or even a rewrite.
Eventually, once there are enough articles, this list will be too big and it will be replaced with some featured articles that are recommended starting points for people new to this wiki.
