Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"It is delightful to see scholarship on Islam re-emerging in Russia in the aftermath of the Soviet period. Here we see what may be a distinctly Russian approach to intellectual history, with a systematic and comparative approach of a remarkably wide extent. A profound sympathy for the sources, which are presented in luxurious profusion, is tempered by a shrewd and realistic appreciation of political realities."--Carl. W. Ernst, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

This book is the first work in English to present a view from Russia of Islamic mysticism. Ibn Arabi and Rumi are the main characters of the book. Their views reflect Sufi understanding of the Absolute being, of man, of the place and role of humans in the universe, of the way of knowledge, and of the fundamentals of morality.

Marietta Stepaniants is Director of the Center for Oriental Philosophies, Institute of Philosophy, at the Russian Academy of Sciences.
