He carefully demonstrates to the trained analytical philosopher that presence-knowledge is a viable and meaningful epistemological mode. The book is by a philosopher written for philosophers. In addition to Muslim philosophers, the book also refers to Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, St. Thomas, Russell, Cunningham, and other western thinkers." -- Hossein Ziai, UCLA "The book is written by an eminent authority on Islamic Philosophy who is equally well versed in European philosophy. The book is a significant contribution to both Islamic philosophy and to comparative philosophy." -- Hamid Dabashi, Harvard University "This is the first serious work we have in English written by a Muslim philosopher as Islamic philosophy. It offers important contributions to contemporary philosophical concerns." -- William C. Chittick, State University of New York, Stony Brook. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: This book aims to present to western philosophers the most important theme in Islamic epistemology: knowledge by presence, the knowledge that results from immediate and intuitive awarenes, advocated by the author as a viable modern philosophical position. Treating the subject in a thoroughly philosophical manner that is comprehensible to contemporary analytical philosophers, he remains faithful to the Islamic tradition.
