A remarkable investigation into the common threads of thought that run through seemingly polarised philosophies from East and West.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In this remarkable book, Adonis, one of the Arab world's greatest living poets, set forth the peculiar convergence of ideas running through Sufism and Surrealism. While at first appearing to be in polar opposition, convincing parallels are drawn between these religious and aesthetic/atheistic movements. Adonis contests that atheism does not necessarily imply a rejection of Sufism, just as Sufism does not necessarily imply a belief in a traditional religion or faith. Both are related to the metaphysical, and both seek to say what has not been said, to know what has not been known.
Adonis is widely considered one of the Arab world's greatest living poets.
