The Principles of Epistemology in Islamic Philosophy

Mehdi Ha'iri Yazdi

Paperback, 246 pages

9780791409480

 

This book aims to present to western philosophers the most important theme in Islamic epistemology: knowledge by presence, the knowledge that results from immediate and intuitive awarenes, advocated by the author as a viable modern philosophical position. Treating the subject in a thoroughly philosophical manner that is comprehensible to contemporary analytical philosophers, he remains faithful to the Islamic tradition.
