Islams d'Europe : intégration ou insertion communautaire? ( Book )

Ancestor of the West : writing, reasoning, and religion in Mesopotamia, Elam, and Greece by Jean Bottéro( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in French and English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
"In this introduction to the ancient world, three leading French historians explore the emergence of rationality and writing: how it developed and how it is remarkably similar to our own tradition. We learn that the supposed twin pillars of Western civilization, Greece and the Bible, were hardly freestanding: they elaborated logical and religious structures that had developed much earlier in Mesopotamia. At the same time Ancestor of the West reminds us that these cultures were precursors of our own precisely because they possessed an intelligence that we still recognize. The ancients, even in their earliest writings, thought like us."--Jacket
Alfarabi and the foundation of Islamic political philosophy by Muhsin Mahdi( Book )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in French and held by 92 libraries worldwide
"In this work, Muhsin Mahdi distills more than four decades of research to offer an authoritative analysis of the work of Alfarabi, the founder of Islamic political philosophy. Mahdi, whose research brought to light writings of Alfarabi previously known only through medieval bibliographical references, presents this great thinker as his contemporaries and followers would have seen him: as a philosopher who sought to lay the foundations for a new understanding of revealed religion and its relation to the tradition of political philosophy." "Mahdi begins with a survey of Islamic philosophy and a discussion of its historical background. He then gives a general sense of the philosophical debate, or an introduction, to the interrelated spheres of philosophy, political thought, theology, and jurisprudence within Islam and, more particularly, within medieval Islam at the time of Alfarabi. Mahdi turns to Alfarabi's concept of "the virtuous city" in the second part of the book. Here, philosophy is distinguished from science on the one hand and religion on the other. Mahdi concludes with an examination of the work that is key to understanding Alfarabi's political thought, the trilogy known as the Philosophy of Plato and Aristotle." "An philosophical engagement with the writings of and about this great thinker, Alfarabi and the Foundation of Islami Political Philosophy is essential reading for anyone interested in medieval political philosophy."--Page 4 of cover

Disciples of passion by Hudá Barakāt( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in French and Spanish and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Dans ce roman, Hoda Barakat rompt avec une certaine littérature féminine pour saisir le rapport homme-femme comme on ne l'a jamais fait jusqu'à présent en langue arabe, et rarement dans les autres langues. La guerre civile libanaise n'est ici qu'un alibi pour explorer les zones troubles, interdites de l'être. On est à l'extrême limite de toute chose, là où l'amour côtoie la folie et la mort
The flowering of Muslim theology by Josef van Ess( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 31 libraries worldwide
"Josef van Ess is a scholar of classical kalam, the Muslim theology that was the precursor to, and foundation for, modern Islam. This book makes available, for the first time in English, the fruit of van Ess's thirty-five years of work in the field. A lucid and authoritative introduction to classical Islam, it opens a window on the intellectual world that gave rise to Muslim theology." "A sustained look at important issues in early kalam, The Flowering of Muslim Theology discusses the emergence of theology in the classical period and offers acute and illuminating comparisons with the Christian (and Jewish) traditions. Van Ess looks at the issue of heresy, at early ideas about straying from true belief. In a substantial and original instance of Koranic exegesis, he considers a problem much debated among classical theologians: whether it is possible to see God. He examines the different ways in which early Muslim thinkers appropriated atomism, a natural philosophy that was originally materialistic and atheistic, for their own theological purposes. He explores the explosive mix of theology and political thought, in an analysis of the development of ideas about the role and authority of a ruler. And he considers the relationship, or contradiction, between faith and knowledge: the enduring question of how one can know whether something is right or true." "A work of intellectual history enlivened by vivid examples, The Flowering of Muslim Theology gives a wider audience rare insight into Islam's rich classical past."--Jacket
