Product Description

Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulusi : Islam and the Enlightenment
Hardback - 162 pages Samer Akkach


Shaykh 'Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulusi [1641-1731CE] Allah be pleased with him of Damascus was a key figure of the Islamic enlightenment. Often characterised solely as a Sufi saint, his thought and teachings were of a much wider remit. A contemporary of many major thinkers, scientists, poets, and philosophers of the European Enlightenment, his life and works offer a new perspective on the roots of modernity
in the Arab World.

Through fresh readings of his biographical sources and a large body of mostly unpublished works, the author examines Shaykh al-Nabulusi's life and thought, exploring his contribution to the intellectual development of Islam and to the debate over its relationship with science.

An unrivalled biography of a key figure in the history of Islam, this fascinating book also offers an invaluable comparision of how rationalism operated in Enlightenment Europe and the Islamic World.
