The wine of wisdom : the life, poetry and philosophy of Omar Khayyam by Mehdi Amin Razavi( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Loved by the free-spirited, hated by his orthodox peers; a stranger in both his homeland and the West: the complexities and contradictions surrounding the life of Omar Khayyam are reconstructed for the first time in this new book." "This comprehensive study draws on a host of sources, placing Khayyam within the context of his own time, and exploring, through his philosophy and poetry, his lifelong preoccupation with such timeless themes as life and death, faith and reason, freewill and fate. Aminrazavi offers fresh insights, not only into the Ruba'iyyat, but also into Khayyam's lasting influence on Western literature from Mark Twain to T.S. Eliot, and his role in the creation of the Orientalist tradition."--Jacket

Suhrawardi and the school of illumination by Mehdi Amin Razavi( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Persian and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shihab al-Din Yahya Suhrawardi, also known as Shaikh al-ishraq or the Master of Illumination, lived in the sixth century AH / twelfth century CE. His thoughts form a consistent and coherent philosophical system, and a close study of his writings in Persian reveals a theory of knowledge generally called 'Knowledge by Presence'. The elaborate web of myth and symbolism in Suhrawardi's philosophy articulates his theory of knowledge, an important subject in the ishraqi school of thought. Suhrawardi, who claims first to have discovered the truth and then embarked on a path to find the rational
Sufism and American literary masters by Mehdi Amin Razavi( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reveals the rich, but generally unknown, influence of Sufism on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American literature. The translation of Persian poets such as Hafiz and Sa di into English and the ongoing popularity of Omar Khayyam offered intriguing new spiritual perspectives to some of the major American literary figures. As editor Mehdi Aminrazavi notes, these Sufi influences have often been subsumed into a notion of Eastern, chiefly Indian, thought and not acknowledged as having Islamic roots. This work pays considerable attention to two giants of American literature, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman, who found much inspiration from the Sufi ideas they encountered. Other canonical figures are also discussed, including Mark Twain, Herman Melville, Henry David Thoreau, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, along with literary contemporaries who are lesser known today, such as Paschal Beverly Randolf, Thomas Lake Harris, and Lawrence Oliphant"--Back cover
