The Wine of Wisdom : The Life, Poetry and Philosophy of Omar Khayyam, Paperback / softback Book

The Wine of Wisdom : The Life, Poetry and Philosophy of Omar Khayyam Paperback / softback

Description

The intoxicating message of Khayyam's famous Ruba`iyyat created an image of exotic Orientalism in the West but, as author Mehdi Aminrazavi reveals, Khayyam's achievements went far beyond the intoxicating message within these verses. Philosopher, mathematician, scientist, and mystic - his many different identities are examined here in detail, creating a coherent picture of this complex and often misunderstood figure.
