The Degrees of Existence - Softcover
Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas
Insightful and fascinating, this book deepens our understanding of the concept, reality, and degrees of exixtence in Islamic philosophy. Al-attas examines the issues with penetrating rigour, explaining lucidly the difference between tashakhkhus, ta’ayyum, tajalli and taqayyud, as modes of individuation, and helps illuminate the typology and gradation of exixtence. It is a substantial contribution to our current understanding of Islamic metaphysics.
