Aminrazavi Publishes Encyclopedia Articles

Mehdi Aminrazavi, professor of philosophy and religion, published eight articles in “The Oxford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Science, and Technology in Islam.” The articles are on Islamic philosophers and one school of philosophy: Ishrāqiyyūn (Illuminationists). These medieval philosophers wrote commentaries on Plato and Aristotle and introduced new ideas of their own to create a rapprochement between eastern and western philosophical thought. Here is the list of articles and their locations:

1. Mīr Dāmād, pages 35-38
2. Suhrawardī, pages 294-298
3. ʻUmar Khayyām, pages 444-448
4. Afḍal al-Dīn Kāshānī, pages 436-438
5. Quṭb al-Dīn Shīrāzī, pages 250-253
6. Sabziwārī, pages 213-215
7. Nāṣir Khusraw, pages 71-74
