Creating and Resurrection

30 Jan 2014 00:00:00 GMT

(image) an Early Muslim Perspective on Divine Unity and Cosmology

By H. Landolt

£39.50   30 Jan 2014   Hardback   I.B.Tauris & Co Ltd

Abu Ya'qub al-Sijistani was a prolific author of many seminal Islamic texts, and is known as the "intellectual missionary" of Fatimid Ismailism. He wrestled with a variety of key theological and philosophical issues during his career, and succeeded in outlining an alternative vision of Islam which has a surprisingly modern appeal. His important work "Kashf al-Mahjub" (literally "the unveiling of the hidden") is published here under the rubric "Creation and Resurrection." Although the original Arabic text appears to have been lost, a near-contemporaneous Persian translation has survived and was edited for the first time by the late Henry Corbin. This new edition of the Persian text, published alongside the first complete English translation and introduction, enables this fascinating work to be read and appreciated anew by a fresh generation of scholars and readers interested in the history of early Islamic philosophy and theology.

The Condition of the Christian Philosopher

This text ultimately explores the role of the Christian philosopher in renewing and continuing fruitful philosophical reflection.





The Kerygma and the Historical Jesus

24 Sep 2010 00:00:00 GMT

(image) By James Robinson

£25.00   24 Sep 2010   Paperback   James Clarke & Co Ltd

The form critic Rudolf Bultmann had argued that we cannot get behind the use the early church made of Jesus traditions, so as to be able to talk about Jesus himself, and that we do not need to do so in any case. For the essence of Christianity is, after all, the kerygma of his death and resurrection. But his pupil Ernst Ksemann argued that this leaves Jesus rather ghostlike in our world, where historical research is used to establish historical reality it would amount to a modern kind of Docetism. Hence the Bultmann school shifted to a new quest of the historical Jesus, with Gunter Bornkamm's Jesus of Nazareth being the most widely-read outcome. Robinson traces this development step by step, and then in subsequent essays updates.

Love's Grateful Striving

(image) A Commentary on Kierkegaard's "Works of Love"

By M.Jamie Ferreira

£13.99   27 May 2010   Paperback   Oxford University Press

Soren Kierkegaard's Works of Love (1847), a series of deliberations on the commandment to love one's neighbor, has often been condemned by critics. Here, Ferreira seeks to rehabilitate Works of Love as one of Kierkegaard's most important works. He shows that Kierkegaard's deliberations on love are highly relevant to some important themes in contemporary ethics, including impartiality, duty, equality, mutuality, reciprocity, self-love, sympathy, and sacrifice. Ferreira also argues that Works of Love bears on issues peculiar to a religious ethic, such as the role of God as "middle term," and the possibility of preserving the aesthetic dimensions of love in a religious ethic of relation.

The Metaphysics of Dante's Comedy

11 May 2010 00:00:00 GMT

(image) By Christian Moevs

£17.00   11 May 2010   Paperback   Oxford University Press

The recovery of Dante's metaphysics - which are very different from our own - is essential, argues Christian Moevs, if we are to resolve what has been called "the central problem in the interpretation of the Comedy." That problem is what to make of the Comedy's claim to the status of revelation, vision, or experiential record - as something more than imaginative literature. In this book Moevs offers the first sustained treatment of the metaphysical picture that grounds and motivates the Comedy, and the relation between those metaphysics and Dante's poetics. Moevs arrives at the radical conclusion that Dante believed that all of what we perceive as reality, the spatio-temporal world, is in fact a creation or projection of conscious being. Armed with this new understanding, Moevs is able to shed light on a series of perennial issues in the interpretation of the Comedy.
