By Elvira Wakelnig

This quantity bargains with the thinker Abū l-Ḥasan al-ʽĀmirī (died 992) and his reception of Neoplatonism, concentrating on his Kitāb al-Fuṣūl fī l-maʽālim al-ilāhīya, the Chapters on Metaphysical Topics (Arabic textual content with German translation). The Chapters on Metaphysical Topics paraphrase sections of the Elements of Theology by means of the Neoplatonist Proclus (died 485) and are for that reason a part of the Arabic Procliana. The statement analyses al-ʽĀmirī's blend of Greek philosophy with Islamic theology, in particular the harmonization of philosophical and Qur'anic terminology (universal mind is the Pen, common Soul the pill) and man's place among the 2 worlds. at the foundation of a textual comparability among al-ʽĀmirī's paintings, the Greek textual content of Proclus and the Arabic writings of the Liber de Causis-tradition, the publication argues for the life of a "Ur-Liber de causis."
