9789004270886: Man Versus Society in Medieval Islam (Brill Classics in Islam)

In Man versus Society in Medieval Islam, Franz Rosenthal (1914-2003) investigates the tensions and conflicts that existed between individuals and society as the focus of his study of Muslim social history. The book brings together works spanning fifty years: the monographs The Muslim Concept of Freedom, The Herb. Hashish versus Medieval Muslim Society (Brill, 1971), Gambling in Islam (Brill, 1975), and Sweeter than Hope. Complaint and Hope in Medieval Islam (Brill,1983), along with all the articles on unsanctioned practices, sexuality, and institutional learning. Reprinted here together for the first time, they constitute the most extensive collection of source material on all these themes from all genres of Arabic writing, judiciously translated and analyzed. No other study to date presents the panorama of medieval Muslim societies in their manifold aspects in as detailed, comprehensive, and illuminating a manner.

About the Author:

FRANZ ROSENTHAL (1914-2003) was Sterling Professor of Arabic and Semitic studies at Yale University. His work includes foundational studies on Aramaic, Classical Arabic, and all aspects of medieval Islam, the classic Knowledge Triumphant (Brill, 1970, reprint 2007), and the magisterial annotated translation of Ibn Khaldun's Muqaddimah (1958, 1967). DIMITRI GUTAS, PhD (Yale, 1975) is Professor of Arabic at Yale. He has published on the medieval Graeco-Arabic translation movement and its lexicography, the transmission of Greek philosophical texts into Arabic, and Arabic philosophy. Most recently he published the commented editio maior of Aristotle's Poetics (with Leonardo Taran, Brill, 2012), and the second edition of his Avicenna and the Aristotelian Tradition, enlarged with an inventory of the philosopher's works (Brill, 2014).
