The Western world and the world of Islam share a history but they also differ greatly. The rise of terrorism has once again made us fully aware of that. In these tense times, I would like to consider a question that is rarely raised today, yet which may be very relevant and very revealing: What attitude do these two worlds take toward technology? When you examine this question in historical perspective you cannot get around the religious background of technology, both in the Islamic world and in the West. This theme is very popular today: there is a renewed interest in the vitality of religion around the world and in the arguments regarding its influence on culture, (1) and especially in the historical development of technology.
