Attending closely to variations of genre and discourse mode within his works, it attempts to resolve some of the major ambiguities that have vexed al-Ghazali's readers for nearly nine hundred years. Beginning with his theory of multi-level, multi-genre writing and working through his theological, philosophical, and mystical positions on the soul's true nature, the study culminates in an exploration of al-Ghazali's mystical "psycho-cosmology", where some startling conclusions are drawn regarding his most intimate thoughts on the "secrets" of the soul and the Hereafter." ;
