Solusi Metodologis M. Amin Abdullah: Penciptaan “Jembatan” Antara Ilmu dan Agama (Perspektif Epistemologi)
The relation between religion and science seems to be the dichotomous view. Both of them are like oil and water, two entities that cannot be reunited and separated. Due to “this dispute”, science often misses their ethics, so science and modern technology have actually humanized humans and distanced them from their nature. The conflict between them forces many intellectual Muslims to make “epistemology bridge” for reconciling science and religion. One of them is M. Amin Abdullah, who argues with the concept of integration-interconnection which is the effort to avoid the dichotomous view of the science and religion (especially Islam-science) and in the epistemology view, the concept is to close back all disciplines so there are dialogues, communications, relationships, and mutual help. This article aims to discuss the epistemology thought of M. Amin Abdullah concerning on integration-interconnection with its methodology and relevance for the scientific development of higher education in Indonesia.
