  • Shows how the quest for shared intuitions of occidental and Islamic spirit yields a rare panorama of human cultural inheritance
  • Provides a unique collection of studies, plunging into the spring of human existence and reveals the spiritual source common to the Occidental as well as the Islamic cultures
  • Looks at the present times of conflicts in the world and how the sharing of originary affinities calls for human fraternity
The contributions, composed in this volume, are inspired not only by the necessity but also by the potentialities of a process which continues and deepens cross-cultural understanding, especially between Islamic and Western philosophy. Following the tradition of an East-Western symphony of thoughts, the authors focus on common horizons and while applying comparative and historical approaches, varieties of unity appear on the ways towards a New Enlightenment. The creative force, orchestrating the harmony in the web of Life, communicates in the mean time with the capacities of human beings, advancing in deciphering its micro-macrocosmic dimensions. Here, the encounter of the Logos of Life Philosophy (A-T. Tymieniecka) and Islamic Philosophy open the space for constructive disputation. In the wake of the crisis of postmodern unknowability, paths towards a new critique of reason go hand in hand with fundamental issues, being reflected newly.
