9780791409480: The Principles of Epistemology in Islamic Philosophy: Knowledge by Presence (SUNY Series in Muslim Spirituality in South Asia) (Suny Series in Islam)

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.

About the Author:

A Professor at Tehran University, Mehdi Ha'iri Yazdi is one of the leading Muslim philosophers. He has a deep and wide understanding of Medieval Islamic Philosophy as well as knowledge of modern analytical techniques and methods. He is the author of Kavushha-yeh 'Aql-i Naz and of Hiram-i Hasti.

Review:

"Ha'iri does not fall back on value-laden spiritual arguments. 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
