Does anybody has the reference to a book on Hadith science that has just been published by a Dutch Orientalist? Mohammad Arkoun mentioned it in his interview on Al-Arabiya TV (II part). I don't have time to critically comment on the interview but Arkoun speaks about "humanism" as if it is apart and above state and power relations. He even invokes terms like "objectivity of science."
