Nicole Crowe Anthropology 320 November 29, 2010 Exam 2 Option 1 Question A: Bowen characterizes his approach as “anthropology of  public reasoning.” Discuss three examples of how this approach  allows him to simultaneously provide rich descriptions and compelling  analyses of Muslims and French society respectively. In Can Islam be French , Bowen uses public reasoning to observe the way Muslim and French operate in the same environment. Public reasoning is a phrase used by philosopher John Rawls. It is to refer to the common reason of all citizens residing in a pluralist society (in our case secularist), and how they learn to share common beliefs. This ties in with his book because he observes how the ways the people in the French society deal with the culture, religious practices, apparent physical differences, and values of the Muslim people. Bowen then focuses on how people who have grown up in France but are practicing Islam. They are referred to as French Muslims, and he tells us of the ways they are integrating their Islamic practices and worship mosques into society
