An Anthology of Philosophy in Persia, Vol.5. Ed. S.H. Nasr & M. Aminrazavi,
London: I.B. Tauris, 2015. pp. 544.
The fifth and final volume of An Anthology of Philosophy in Persia deals with some seven centuries of Islamic thought stretching from the era following the Mongol invasion to the end of the Qajar period early in the 20th Century.
Organized around the cities which became the main centers of philosophical activity during this long period, the volume is divided into three parts: ‘The School of Shiraz’, whose importance not only for Persia but also for Ottoman Turkey and Muslim India is only now being recognized; ‘The School of Isfahan’, which marks the integration of some eight centuries of Islamic thought and culminates with Mulla Sadra; and finally ‘The School of Tehran’, where traditional philosophy first encountered modern thought in Persia.
