Details: The Ringstones of Wisdom - Fusus al-Hikam,
*[A5+] Paperback - 345 pages,
by Shaykh al-Akbar; Muhiy ad-Din ibn al-Arabi al-Andalusi,
Translation, Introduction, & Glosses by Caner K. Dagli,
Part of the ''Great Books of the Islamic World'' series,
Published by Kazi, Chicago.




Description :


Together with al-Futuhat al-Makkiyyah (The Mekkan Openings), Al-Fusus al-Hikam (The Ringstones of Wisdom) is Shaykh Muhiy' ad-Din Ibn al-Arabiís, may Allah be pleased with him, most famous work and the one that has been the most frequently commented upon by later Sufis. This single volume, with each chapter devoted to the wisdom associated with the inner reality of a Prophet, provides a synthesis of his central metaphysical, cosmological, and spiritual doctrines.


'The Ringstones of Wisdom' is an entirely new translation. Caner Dagli provides readers with a detailed introduction and running commentary almost equal in length to the text itself. These glosses draw from the centuries-old tradition of commentary upon the Fusūs, and are presented in unencumbered philosophical language and supplemented with new material. They explain Ibn al-ĎArabiís metaphysical ideas, his technical vocabulary, and even the frequently difficult structure of his prose and poetry.


As a precise and technically consistent translation of a notoriously difficult work, 'The Ringstones of Wisdom' is an important addition to the study of Sufism and Islamic philosophy. Scholars in the field will find new insights into Ibn al-ĎArabiís technical terms and aspects of the text which previously have gone unstudied. Those without a previous knowledge of Sufism or Islam will find that the commentary and the clarity of the translation make the book accessible to non-specialists as well.




About the Author : Caner K. Dagli is a doctoral candidate in Princeton University's Department of Near Eastern Studies. He holds a B.A. from Cornell University and an M.A. from George Washington University. His scholarly interests include Sufism, Islamic philosophy in the West, religion and science, and the writings of the seventeenth century Persian philosopher Mulla Sadra, fields in which he has published articles.
