OISO, a major reference tool for Islamic Studies as it covers the whole Muslim world from Indonesia to Morocco and everything in between. The reference tool’s usefulness just increased with the recent publication of Dr. Walter Young, a recent IIS graduate. His article entitled “Uṣūl al-fiqh” provides a concise overview of the subject as well as a splendid bibliography for further reading.
To access the article you must login to your McGill account (or your local institution): Uṣūl al-fiqh.
Walter’s PhD thesis The Dialectical Forge: proto-system juridical disputation in the Kitāb Ikhtilāf al-‘Irāqiyyīn (2 vols.) is freely accessible via McGill’s escholarship platform.
Congratulations, Dr. Young!
