Subtle Insights Concerning Knowledge and Practice EPUB
Part of the World Thought in Translation series
Written in the mid'thirteenth century for the newly appointed governor of Isfahan, this compact treatise and philosophical guidebook includes a wide'ranging and accessible set of essays on ethics, psychology, political philosophy, and the unity of God. Ibn KammSÂ«na,a Jewish scholar writing in Baghdad during a time of Mongol occupation, was a controversial figure whose writings sometimes incited riots. He argued, among other things, the commonality of all monotheisms, both prophetic and philosophical. Here, for the first time in English, is a surprisingly modern work on the unity of all monotheistic regimes from a key medieval philosopher.
