9781472569448: The Biographical Encyclopedia of Islamic Philosophy
Revue de presse :

Winner Outstanding Academic Title Award 2007 Offering a broader perspective than its title indicates, this useful encyclopedia extends beyond philosophy to include "all kinds of theoretical enquiry which were regarded in their time as philosophical," including the Islamic sciences, grammar, theology, law, and traditions. Befitting the biographical focus, all the major (and many minor) philosophers, theologians, and mystics (so long as they are not alive) receive illuminating treatment.
Additionally, the work includes many useful large conceptual entries, e.g., on meaning, logic, and epistemology, but also on fundamentalism, mysticism, and religion. The wide net is welcome, given the great variety of approaches to wisdom (hikma) in Islamic traditions, from rational philosophy (falsafa) to illuminationist gnosis (ishraq). Potential readers will discover that this work covers not only a great variety of philosophers, but also nonphilosophical Sufi mystics like Abu Sa'id and Rabi'a, and influential mystical poets like Ibn al-Farid. The entry on the great Rumi fills 18 columns, one of the largest. The editor is to be commended for compiling a work that will help to alleviate the pervasive ignorance of Islamic thought and culture in English-speaking countries. Summing Up: Highly recommended.
-- - CHOICE, Feburary 2007

When most people here in the West think of philosophy, they focus primarily on those thinkers of the western tradition with few exceptions. To help counteract this trend, Oliver Leaman s Biographical Encyclopedia of Islamic Philosophy offers access to Islamic philosophers from all periods as well as the main trends and ideas. To his credit, Leaman acknowledges the role of major philosophical reference works, such as The Encyclopdia of Philosophy and The Encyclopedia of Islam even as he and his colleagues focus on the sub-field in question. The introduction renders a usual overview and a listing of key reference works for every level of scholarly audience. The articles vary in length according to the philosopher s or movement s importance, offering biographical (or as appropriate, historical) details and highlighting the key writings. A work cited list including both primary and secondary works accompanies each. Judiciously included cross-references guide readers to related articles within the set. Islamic connections to other faiths thought and traditions provides context for the reader in terms of how ideas appear and develop over time.
Leaman s work fills an important gap in reference literature. While aimed at an academic audience, the set s clearly crafted essays grant people access to the ideas and people comprising almost 1400 years of Islamic philosophical tradition. This work is recommended for college, university libraries, and religious institutions. -- - American Reference Books Annual Vol. 37, 2007

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Philosophy flourished in the Islamic world for many centuries, and continues to be a significant feature of cultural life today.

Every major school of thought, from classical Peripatetic philosophy to Sufi mysticism, is represented, and entries range across time from the early years of the faith to the modern period.

Featuring an international group of authors from South East Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East and North Africa, Europe and North America, The Biographical Encyclopedia of Islamic Philosophy provides access to the ideas and people comprising almost 1400 years of Islamic philosophical tradition.
