Abstract

https://doi.org/10.12730/13091719.2013.42.90 An Anthology of Philosophy in Persia, Vol. 4: From the School of Illumination to Philosophical Mysticism, edited by Seyyed Hossein Nasr and Mehdi Aminrazavi (London & New York: I.B. Tauris in association with The Institute of Ismaili Stud-ies, 2012), xix + 532 pp., ISBN: 978-1-84885-749-0, £39.50 (hb) (First paragraph) This book is the fourth volume of a massive anthology, dealing roughly with the period from the 13th to the 16th century. This late medieval period is receiving more and more attention lately, and so this anthology is timely. While previously Nasr and Aminrazavi had stated they would able to complete their project in four volumes, they now write that a fifth part will follow, mostly to cover areas that had to be left out in this volume due to space limitations (p. 1). They limit their fourth volume to around 500 pages, just like the previous volumes.
