Transcript of 01.04 The Golden Age of Islam: Honors Assessment

Artistic and Intellectual Achievements
We, like them , have ''gender roles'' , racial and cultural construction, population , household relationships, and respect for all knowledge and people of faith. The middle ages and the 2st century consisted of all these examples. A number of important educational and scientific institutions previously unknown in the ancient world have their origins in the early Islamic world, with the most notable examples being: the public hospital (which replaced healing temples and sleep temples) and psychiatric hospital, the public library and lending library, the academic degree-granting university, and the astronomical observatory as a research institute as opposed to a private observation post as was the case in ancient times).
01.04 The Golden Age of Islam: Honors Assessment
Modern Society considered yo be in ''Golden Age''
21st Century
The Golden Age had the ''pursuit of learning''.The 21st century here in America allows us to have the opportunity to learn.They also had a population filled with many different types of people. We also have many different people here in America.Than, like us, also had sources of learned and preserved knowledge.
In today's time we do have plenty of floral designs. We also have many geometric shapes everywhere, for example buildings. Than , in the Golden Age, they also had floral and geometric designs and shapes. Patterns and arabesques appear on buildings just as they do in smaller art. Many images in Islam shows the use of archways, geometric patterns, and attention to detail. According to the teachings of the Qur'an, Islamic artists were forbidden from using human figures in religious art. So they developed a style of geometric shapes and patterns that were used to decorate religious buildings called Mosques. These geometric patterns usually contained verses from the Qur'an written in a stylized form of decorative handwriting called calligraphy. Art Geometric designs were very important as well. Certain materials were valued over others. The wood used to decorate this door shown here was a sign of wealth.
We have 'economic basis' so production of food. We also have our economic system and the expansions within the systems . We also have plenty of natural resources. These few topics that I mentioned were also happening in the Golden Age. Just another reason why the 21st century could be like the golden Age. In western society politics and economics run hand in hand quite a bit since powerful politicians have a big influence not just in western economy but in world economy but like any other economy western economy is mainly maintained through trade. Most westernized countries carry a form of democracy similar to the one the United States was formed under. Politicians are elected into congress by peoples votes and then after they are elected they can run for higher offices if they wish much like climbing a ladder.
Medical, Technological and scientific contributions.
In the Golden Age there was constantly advances in medicine; we do too. There was a point n the Golden Age where there was a constant amount of new hospitals. In America, we are always establishing hospitals. They also had lots of potential cures. We also have technology spreading and the impact it puts on society. The Islamic Empire significantly contributed to globalization during the Islamic Golden Age, when the knowledge, trade and economies from many previously isolated regions and civilizations began integrating through contacts with Muslim explorers and traders. Their trade networks extended from the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea in the west to the Indian Ocean and China Sea in the east. These trade networks helped establish the Islamic Empire as the world’s leading extensive economic power throughout the 7th–13th centuries.
The following are more similarities between the two: Political structure and the way it goes through the governments approval. Our governments organization and our laws are similarities. The present role of Islam in Middle Eastern politics is not a continuation but a reconstruction of the historical paradigms. In the modern era, there were two Islamic paradigms. One was of an integral state and society unified under the political and moral leadership of a charismatic religious teacher; the other, of a society divided between state and religious institutions and differentiated political and religious elites, the latter being the custodians of the true Islam. The second tradition made room for purely secular monarchical concepts and a secular political culture. In the modern era, the historical Islamic paradigms have little influence on state formation. Even the avowedly Islamic states do not really hark back to the past but represent, for the most part, contemporary national states appealing to a new concept of national-state Islam.
