|“Temple and Contemplation” hits Iranian bookstores||
The book has been translated for the first time in Persian by Ensha’alleh Rahmati who has also written a preface to the book.
The book includes five lectures given by Corbin in meetings of Eranos, an intellectual discussion group dedicated to the study of psychology, religion, philosophy and spirituality, in Switzerland.
“The Realism and Symbolism of Colors in Shiite Cosmology”, “The Science of the Balance and the Correspondences between Worlds in Islamic Gnosis”, “Sabian Temple and Ismailism”, “The Configuration of the Temple of the Kabeh as the Secret of Spiritual Life” and “The Imago Templi in Confrontation with Secular Norms” are the chapters of the book.
Henry Corbin (1903-1978) was a philosopher, theologian and professor of Islamic Studies at the Sorbonne in Paris, France.
Corbin is responsible for redirecting the study of Islamic philosophy as a whole. In his “Histoire de la Philosophie Islamique” (1964), he disproved the common view that philosophy among the Muslims came to an end after Ibn Rushd, demonstrating rather that a lively philosophical activity persisted in the eastern Muslim world -- especially Iran -- and continues to our day.
