An Anthology of Philosophy in Persia, Vol 1: From Zoroaster to 'Umar Khayyam

W42347

An Anthology of Philosophy in Persia, Vol 1: From Zoroaster to 'Umar Khayyam
$69.95
This volume begins and ends with two of the most famous figures in Persian history, one known as a prophet and the other as a poet and scientist, and yet both dealt with the profoundest philosophical issues. Beginning with some of the texts of Zoroaster with philosophical import, the first part of this volume continues with selections from both Zoroastrian and Manichaean sources composed in the middle centuries of the first millennium of the Common Era. The second part deals with the early Islamic period and the fairly sudden flowering of the Islamic philosophy much of which to this day has had its major locus of activity in Persia. The texts of this period included in this volume consist of the works of several Persian philosophers of the early Islamic period including the most famous of all Islamic philosophers Ibn Sina - Avicenna. It ends with selections from some of the philosophical treatises of Khayyam which have been little studied in the West till now.
From I.B. Tauris
