Abstract

This study aims to discusses the relation between science and Islamic spirituality in Hegel's dialectics approach, a logical thinking that places something in dialectics between thesis, antithesis and sythesis. In relation with science and Islamic spirituality, places the spirit of Islam on science is a thesis, the Islamic spirituality's view of science is antithesis, and effort to integration of science in Islamic spirituality is a synthesis. The Islamic spirituality's view of science as knowledge-according to Ia G Barbour-is rather than contradictory. This is influenced by epistemological structures which differ the Islamic spirituality is built on revelation-intuitive reason, and scence is built on positivism-empiric reason, besides supported by apology attitude as well as positioned Islamic spirituality as knowledge which is same with shariah (al-ilm ash-shariah) become anomaly wich as if science is contradict with shari'ah (al-ilm gharu shari'ah). Appearance the awareness of muslim intellectuals to reconcile the science and islamic spirituality in as synthesis, mapped in three models, namely Islamization of knowledge as an attempt to found science in the argumentation of Qur'anic verses, Saintification of Islam as an effort to islamic approaced to science, and islamic science is formulate science based al-Qur'an (revelation). The third pattern is trying to make takwil of the Qur'an verses as an inspiration to development of science by combine the empiric-positivism-intuitif-revelation reason as has become the interest of scholars muslim in islamic peripatetic and illumination tradition era.
