Humor in der arabischen Kultur ( )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collected volume publishes the contributions of numerous scholars to the International Symposium Humor in Arabic Culture, by the editor in July 2007 at the Free University of Berlin. First of all, a critical view is taken of early Muslim religious writings - and against the background of relevant Jewish and Christian pronouncements - to determine more closely the Islamic discourse on the value and non-value of humor; here too the question is examined of the extent to which normative forces were thus released which were able to set boundaries for Arabic humor. Then the wide spectrum of the
Zeit und Gott hellenistische Zeitvorstellungen in der altarabischen Dichtung und im Koran by Georges Tamer ( )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in German and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work deals with concepts of time in pre-Islamic Arabic poetry and in the Koran, placing them in relation to Hellenistic conceptions of time in Late Antique poetry. The analysis shows that just as in the much earlier field of Greek poetry, so too in Old Arabic verse time is seen as an inescapable power. The Arabic concept for endless time, dahr, is revealed to be the Arabic equivalent of the Greek concept aión. In the Koran the power of time is denied completely and replaced by the absolute power of God, which is described with the help of Hellenistic conceptions of time. The research sugg

Humor in der arabischen Kultur Humor in Arabic culture ( )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collected volume publishes the contributions of numerous scholars to the International Symposium Humor in Arabic Culture, by the editor in July 2007 at the Free University of Berlin. First of all, a critical view is taken of early Muslim religious writings - and against the background of relevant Jewish and Christian pronouncements - to determine more closely the Islamic discourse on the value and non-value of humor; here too the question is examined of the extent to which normative forces were thus released which were able to set boundaries for Arabic humor. Then the wide spectrum of the humorous in classical Arabic literature is reviewed and the common elements connecting the multifarious forms of its expression are revealed as a traditional Arabic understanding of humor. Finally, the papers discuss the way Arabic humor has changed with the onset of the modern age and globalization and examine the role of humor as a vehicle of social and political criticism in Arabic societies

Islamic theology, philosophy and law : debating Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present volume sheds new light on central themes of Ibn Taymiyya's (661/1263-728/1328) and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya's (691/1292-751/1350) thought and the relevance of their ideas to diverse Muslim societies. Investigating their positions in Islamic theology, philosophy and law, the contributions discuss a wide range of subjects, e.g. law and order; the divine compulsion of human beings; the eternity of eschatological punishment; the treatment of Sufi terminology; and the proper Islamic attitude towards Christianity. Notably, a section of the book is dedicated to analyzing Ibn Taymiyya's struggle for and against reason as well as his image as a philosopher in contemporary Islamic thought. Several articles present the influential legacy of both thinkers in shaping an Islamic discourse facing the challenges of modernity. " -- from the publisher
