Humor in der arabischen Kultur by Georges Tamer( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and English and held by 1,198 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

Islamic theology, philosophy and law : debating Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 583 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."--The publisher
Kritische Religionsphilosophie : eine Gedenkschrift für Friedrich Niewöhner( )

9 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Middle Ages to modern times, from religion to philosophy and vice versa, from Christianity to Judaism to Islam - this volume includes papers written in honor of Friedrich Niewöhner, the scholar and historian of philosophy who died in 2005.

Exegetical crossroads : understanding scripture in Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the pre-modern Orient by Georges Tamer( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back cover: The art of interpreting Holy Scriptures flourished throughout the culturally heterogeneous pre-modern Orient among Jews, Christians and Muslims. Different ways of interpretation developed within each religion not without considering the others. How were the interactions and how productive were they for the further development of these traditions? Have there been blurred spaces of scholarly activity that transcended sectarian borders? What was the role played by mutual influences in profiling the own tradition against the others? These and other related questions are critically treated in the present volume
The trias of Maimonides : Jewish, Arabic, and ancient culture of knowledge = Die Trias des Maimonides : jüdische, arabische und antike Wissenskultur by Georges Tamer( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jewish religion, Greek philosophy and Islamic thought mold the philosophy and theology of Maimonides and characterize his work as an excellent example of the fruitful transfer of culture in the Middle Ages. The authors show various aspects of this cultural cross-fertilization, despite religious and ethnic differences. The studies prompt thoughts on a question which is important for the present and the future: How may the different religions, cultures and concepts of knowledge continue to be conveyed in synthesis? The volume publishes the lectures given at the July 2004 international congress at the occasion of the 800th anniversary of Maimonides’ death
Islam and rationality : the impact of al-Ghazali : papers collected on his 900th anniversary by Frank Griffel( Book )

21 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al-Ghazali (d. 505/1111) is one of the most influential thinkers of Islam. There is hardly a genre of Islamic literature where he is not regarded as a major authority. Islamic Law, Sufism, ethics, philosophy, and theology are all deeply shaped by him. Yet in the past thirty years, the field of Ghazali-studies has been shaken by the realization that Avicenna (Ibn Sina, d. 428/1037) and other philosophers had a strong influence on him. Now, after the 900th anniversary at his death, the field emerges stronger than ever. This second volume of 'Islam and Rationality: The Impact of al-Ghazali' brings together twelve leading experts on al-Ghazali who write about his thought and the impact it had on later Muslim thinkers

Die orthodoxen Kirchen im interreligiösen Dialog mit dem Islam by Dietmar Schön( )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interreligious dialogue is an essential tool to facilitate peaceful coexistence among people groups with different religious backgrounds in an increasingly metropolitan world. The Orthodox Church has a long experience with interreligious dialogue and has encouraged tolerance and mutual understanding. This volume documents the contribution of the autocephalous orthodox churches since the 1980s until today in an ecumenical context."--

The history of the Qur'an by Theodor Nöldeke( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in Arabic and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first complete translation of Theodor Nöldeke's The History of the Qurʼān offers a foundational work of modern Qurʼānic studies to the English-speaking public. Nöldeke's original publication, as revised and expanded over nearly three quarters of a century by his scholarly successors, Friedrich Schwally, Gotthelf Bergsträsser and Otto Pretzl, remains an indispensable resource for any scholarly work on the text of the Qurʼān. Nöldeke's segmentation of the surahs into three Meccan periods and a Medinan one has shaped all subsequent discussions of the chronology of the Qurʼān. The revisions and expansions of Nöldeke's initial discussions of the orthography and variant readings of the text have found a new audience among those contemporary scholars who seek to create a more sophisticated understanding of the Qurʼān's textual development"--Back cover
