Description

"What you consider to be inanimate is in fact alive! The cosmos is letters inscribed and vowels led upon the outspread parchment of existence and this writing continues on it everlastingly, indefinitely There is nothing in existence but the divine presence, which is essence, attributes, and acts The way of gaining knowledge is divided between reflection and bestowal." These are the words of Ibn Arabi, a Muslim philosopher, scholar and spiritual mystic. This book is an invitation to all curious seekers who like to explore the truth of Ibn Arabi's findings. The book is a comparison between Ibn Arabi's epistemology and recent theories of knowledge such as Karl Popper's critical rationalism. The author investigates Ibn Arabi's claim that everything is alive from the scientific point of view and argues that consciousness has been perpetual in existence; and that every entity has a degree of awareness which was emanated from an absolute divine everlasting awareness. The author also suggests that spiritual practices are like scientific experiments which favor the sagacious mind to receive the truth. Amany also draws the parallel between Ibn Arabi's three aspects of reality and the standard model and the string theory in physics. She also compares Ibn Arabi's three aspects with Popper's three worlds theory. Amany also explores the different modes of gaining knowledge: sensation, reason, imagination and actions' feedbacks. If you are interested in religion, philosophy, science, metaphysics, Islam, Sufism and spirituality then pick up this book and explore!show more
