The act of being : the philosophy of revelation in Mullā Sadrā by Christian Jambet( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study by Christian Jambet explores the essential merits of the philosophical system of Mulla Sadra Shirazi, an Iranian Shi'ite of the seventeenth century. The writings of Mulla Sadra Shirazi (1571-1640) bear witness to the divine revelation in every act of being, from the most humble to the most eminent. More generally, Islamic philosophy employs an ontology that belongs to our own universe of thought. Jambet's study seeks to make sense of this intuition of the real, nourished by the Sufism of Ibn al-Arabi, the philosophy of classic Islam, the thought inherited from the Greeks, and the esoteric and mystical dimensions of Shi'ism."--Jacket

Paradise of submission : a medieval treatise on Ismaili thought by Naṣīr al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad Ṭūsī( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paradise of Submission (Rawda-yi taslim), is Tusi's most important and comprehensive Ismaili work. It consists of 27 chapters called tasawwurat (meaning 'reflections' or 'representations') on a variety of themes such as the Creator and the cosmos, the nature of human existence, ethics and human relations, religion, eschatology, prophethood and imamate. Additionally, there are chapters on the varieties of human knowledge, the nature of language, different forms of worship, and the soul's progression from corporeality to spirituality." "The significance of this treatise arises not only from its comprehensive treatment of medieval Ismaili thought, with its characteristic synthesis of theology, philosophy and esotericism, but also from its unique status as the only major doctrinal work of the early Nizari Ismailis to have survived the Mongol invasions of Iran in the 7th/13th century." "This new Persian edition and complete English translation of the Rawda-yi taslim has been prepared by S.J. Badakhchani on the basis of several known as well as recently discovered manuscripts of the text, and accompanied with an introductory essay by Hermann Landolt and a philosophical commentary by Christian Jambet."--Jacket

Écrits mémorables by Louis Massignon( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orientaliste, titulaire de la chaire de sociologie musulmane au Collège de France, Louis Massignon respecta et renouvela la tradition d'hospitalité savante des études arabes, iraniennes, turques, en révélant au public occidental les richesses de la spiritualité musulmane. Rien de l'islam ne lui était étranger : religion, mystique, philosophie, art, rituels, folklore et langues classiques ou vulgaires. Lire ses études sur le monde musulman est aujourd'hui encore la meilleure façon de comprendre l'islam, sans adhésion aveugle mais sans les voiles que nos préjugés interposent entre islam et conscience occidentale. Cette rage de connaître ne pouvait se perpétuer sans l'universalité d'une vocation. Massignon, par son intransigeante foi chrétienne, s'ouvrit aux horizons du monde. Il se voulut l'interprète de notre temps, qu'il conçoit comme le moment critique de l'Histoire, en déchiffrant les signes de notre destination spirituelle dans les figures de justice, d'amour, d'abnégation, de Jeanne d'Arc à Gandhi, de Fatima à Judah Leon Magnes, qui préparent la réconciliation de l'humanité, à Jérusalem. Cette attente vibrante de l'Esprit soutient une activité militante ardente en fraternité avec tous les exclus, les victimes des puissances étatiques, les humiliés et les offensés

Islam and the challenge of civilization by Abdelwahab Meddeb( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in French and English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abdelwahab Meddeb makes an urgent case for an Islamic reformation, located squarely in Western Europe, now home to millions of Muslims, where Christianity and Judaism have come to coexist with secular humanism and positivist law. He is not advocating "moderate" Islam, which he characterizes as thinly disguised Wahabism, but rather an Islam inspired by the great Sufi thinkers, whose practice of religion was not bound by doctrine. To accomplish this, Meddeb returns to the doctrinal question of the text as transcription of the uncreated word of God and calls upon Muslims to distinguish between Islam's spiritual message and the temporal, material, and historically grounded origins of its founding scriptures. He contrasts periods of Islamic history--when philosophers and theologians engaged in lively dialogue with other faiths and civilizations, and contributed to transmitting the Hellenistic tradition to early modern Europe--with modern Islam's collective amnesia of this past. Meddeb wages a war of interpretations in this book, in his attempt to demonstrate that Muslims cannot join the concert of nations unless they set aside outmoded notions such as jihad and realize that feuding among the monotheisms must give way to the more important issue of what it means to be a citizen in today's post-religious global setting
