Texte intégral

1This French translation of Hernández’s original Spanish book Historia del pensiamento en el mundo islámico has been prepared and slightly edited by Roland Béhar, the director of the collection La mesure de choses. Hernández’s work consists of three parts. The first part treats the evolution of thought in the Islamic East from its origins to the 12th century. The second part focuses on thought in al-Andalus between the 9th and 14th centuries. The third part is dedicated to the changes in Islamic thinking from Ibn Ḫaldūn to the present. Each part covers a broad expanse of themes, but approaches them differently. The themes of the first part range from political history, religious thought, Sufism and falsafa which are treated partly as general discussions of an entire domain of thought and partly as an overview about main aspects of individual scholars’ thought, in particularly philosophers. The second part brings together the ideas of Muslim and Jewish thinkers of al-Andalus focusing on individual personalities with the exception of the last chapter that deals with the intellectual issue of decline in al-Andalus. The third part returns to a debate of broader themes such as Oriental theosophy, Iranian thinking, the re-awakening of Muslim thought in the nineteenth century or the influence of European thought with the exception of the first chapters which deals primarily with Ibn Ḫaldūn and his Muqaddima.
