Epistles of the Brethren of Purity : on music : an Arabic critical edition and English translation of Epistle 5 by Ikhwān al-Ṣafāʼ ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present volume is the third of this definitive series consisting of the very first critical edition of the Rasa'il in its original Arabic, complete with the first fully annotated English translation. Prepared by Professor Owen Wright, Epistle 5: 'On Music' presents technical concepts such as rhythm, tone, and metre, alongside more subtle aspects such as the psychological applications drawn from the fourfold theory of humours and the correspondence of numeric proportions, which emphasize the Ikhwan's view of music as ultimately spiritual in nature. --
On magic : an Arabic critical edition and English translation of Epistle 52a by Ikhwān al-Ṣafāʼ ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Ikhwan al-Safa (Brethren of Purity), the anonymous adepts of a tenth-century esoteric fraternity based in Basra and Baghdad, hold an eminent position in the history of science and philosophy in Islam due to the wide reception and assimilation of their monumental encyclopaedia, the Rasa'il Ikhwan al-Safa (Epistles of the Brethren of Purity). This compendium contains fifty-two epistles offering synoptic accounts of the classical sciences and philosophies of the age; divided into four classificatory parts, it treats themes in mathematics, logic, natural philosophy, psychology, metaphysics, and theology, in addition to didactic fables. The Rasa'il constitutes a paradigmatic legacy in the canonization of philosophy and the sciences in mediaeval Islamic civilization, as well as having shown a permeating influence in Western culture. This is the fifth volume in a series presenting the very first critical edition of the Rasa'il in its original Arabic, complete with the first fully annotated English translation. Epistle 52: On Magic is the last in the corpus, and presents the short version of the 'Epistle on Magic, Incantations, and the Evil Eye'. -- Publisher description

The animals' lawsuit against humanity : a modern adaptation of an ancient animal rights tale by Ikhwān al-Ṣafāʼ ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How current this tenth century tale is for both the young and old of today! It addresses environmental and animal rights issues with charming efficacy. A Muslim Sufi work of 10th century Iraq, translated by a rabbi into Hebrew, and rendered into Latin for a Christian king is now translated from the popular Hebrew version by Jews into English, edited by a Christian and illustrated exquisitely by a Muslim woman from India under the patronage of a Saudi princess. This is a true interfaith and multi-cultural title!" "In this fable, eloquent representatives of all members of the Animal Kingdom-from horses to bees-come before the respected Spirit King to complain of the dreadful treatment they have suffered at the hands of humankind. During the ensuing trial, where both humans and animals testify before the king, both sides argue their points ingeniously, deftly illustrating the validity of both sides of the ecology debate.
