International conference organized by the Institute of Philosophy (Department of Islamic philosophy) and Foundation for Islamic culture research

 

Scheduled for 26-27 September 2013

 

Venue: Room 524 (5th floor), Institute of Philosophy, Volkhonka 14, Moscow 119991

 

 

 

Idea

Idea of the conference is to explore different fields of Islamic culture and Islamic thought, such as fiqh, doctrine, philosophy, philology, Qur’ānic sciences, history, music, fine arts, etc., in order to answer the question: is there any commonality between them in gathering “scattered” units and “organizing” them into a sort of unity? Many madhhabs, but one sharī‘a; scattered bayts gathered into a ghazal; strewn sounds organized into a laḥn; āyāt gathered into sūra, and suwar organized as Qur’ānic text; atomic things and unity of being. Those are but a few examples of translating the theme of the conference into reality of Islamic culture. Ẓāhir-bāṭin, ’aṣl-far‘, tashbīh-tanzīh, tafrī, ishtiqāq and other categories are used by Islamic thinkers to express correlation between unity and multiplicity. Do they express Islamic view of unity-multiplicity problem? What is the approach to this problem specific, and at the same time distinctive, for Islamic thinkers?
