Abdelilah Ljamai

Ibn ḥazm († 1064) was one of the most original religious thinkers in the cultural history of Islam and the first polemicist from Andalusia to attempt - in his Fisal - to refute the tenets of Judaism and Christianity. This book focuses mainly on his doctrine on the relation between Islam and Christianity in theory and practice. He lived in a society, which was characterised by religious pluralism: Jews, Christians and Muslims lived together in a single community, so that his views can only be understood in the social-political context of his times. The author first discusses the biography of Ibn ḥazm, the question of his Christian origins and personal contacts with Christians as well as the chronology of his oeuvre. He then looks at his evaluation of Christianity, the sources for his treatment, his understanding of Christian doctrine and ritual, and the degree of originality of his treatment, and concludes by examining his influence on later Islamic polemicists. In three appendices the author shows relations between the printed text of al-Fisal and its only manuscript source, MS Vienna 975, presents the texts of the Epistles of Paul from MS National Library Madrid ms 4971 (Novum Testamentum Arabicum) and of the Kitāb 'alā 'l-Tawrāt (MS Köprülü, 794 M. 196 YK) of the later polemicist 'Alā' al-Dīn al-Bājī.

This second volume, out of three, contains the chapters 216 up to 320 of the alltogether 372 chapters. Based on the Dār al-yaqaza al-‘arabiyya (1966-1967) and on the manuscript of the Library of Alger, this translation has taken into account the work accomplished by Michel Chodkiewicz (Éditions du Seuil, 1982) and by A. Khurshīd (Alif Ëditions, 1996). It deals with mystic comments on Qur’anic verses and prophetic translations inspired by Ibn ‘Arabi’s work. This volume also contains long comments on the Futuḥāt. Chapter 248 deals with the synthesis of Shaykh al-Akbar's view on the world, which helps to get an idea of this rather well organised vision, which is however often hard to understand.

This first of three volumes comprising ‘Abd al Qâdir’s work contains 215 of the 372 original chapters. Based on the Dār al-yaqaza al-‘arabiyya (1966-1967) and on the manuscript of the Library of Alger, this translation addresses the work done so far by Michel Chodkiewicz and by A. Khurshīd. It deals with mystic comments on Qur’anic verses and prophetic translations inspired by Ibn ‘Arabi’s work. It serves as a useful introduction to Futuḥāt and Fusus.

Ibrāhīm Ibn Sinān was one of the most famous scientists of the tenth century. His specialities were geometry, logic and philosophy of mathematics. In this volume, three new hypotheses are presented.
The first one concerns the existence and the development of philosophy of mathematics in Arabic, independently of traditional metaphysics and philosophy. It is mainly concerned with the logic of discovery and the logic of proof. The second hypothesis concerns the development of a new chapter in mathematics devoted to geometrical transformations. The close connection between astronomy and mathematics, used to develop this last chapter, is discussed in the third hypothesis.
The book presents a critical edition done for the first time and based on all available manuscripts, French translations, and long historical and mathematical commentaries.
