Résumé / Abstract

Can human conscience be a uniting bond between Christians and Muslims, across moral and religious differences? This article discusses the notion of damir as employed by the Egyptian Muslim authors Abbas Mahmud al-Aqqad, Khalid Muhammad Khalid and M. Kamil Husayn. In the 1950s and 1960s, these authors used the notion of damir to express the inward dimension of Islamic ethics. As Islamic humanists, they also used it to express what Muhammad and Jesus, Muslims and Christians, may 'know together' in the field of ethics. The modem Egyptian material is related to some observations on the semantic history of damir, and a discussion of the conceptual history of conscience in Christian tradition and European philosophy. The article proposes that a constitutive element in the notion of conscience is the tension between 'knowing by oneself' and 'knowing with others' In a broader perspective, the article discusses conscience as a globalized concept, and its importance for a Christian-Muslim dialogue which respects the difference of the Other.
