Two Postdoctoral Positions for the Project “Avicenna East & West I: Commentaries On The Qaṣīdat Al-Nafs” (FRS-FNRS; UCLouvain, Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium) — LIMITE : 01/10/2019

2 Postdoctoral positions (9 and 12 months respectively) for the project “Avicenna East & West I: Commentaries on the Qaṣīdat al-nafs” (FRS-FNRS; UCLouvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium)

Project description

The aim of this project on the commentaries on the Qaṣīdat al-nafs attributed to Avicenna is twofold: (1) to provide a better understanding of how Avicenna’s theory on the soul was received, interpreted and transformed in the Muslim East ; and (2) to document the attitude towards Avicenna’s legacy, and falsafain general, in Islamic society.

The corpus chosen offers a particularly fruitful basis for such an inquiry: the poem is rather short and not technical (allowing a large diffusion in a non-philosophical milieu), while raising important questions about the congruence of some of the ideas it conveys with what we know to be Avicenna’s teaching.
