To be held at the House of Literati
Critical session on Abed Al-Jabri ideas
The ideas of Moroccan philosopher Abed Al-Jabri will be assessed in a session at the Hosue of Literati on Wednesday June 13.
IBNA: Mohammed Abed Al-Jabri was a contemporary Moroccan critic and professor of philosophy and Islamic thought in Mohammed V University in Rabat who passed away on May 3, 2010. He was also an expert in Arabic and Arabic literature. He is considered to have been one of the major intellectual figures in the contemporary Arab world. He is also known for his academic project "The critique of the Arab Mind". He published several influential books on the Arab philosophical tradition.
The Wednesday critical session of the House of Literati is dedicated to the ideas of this Moroccan philosopher.
The session will be held with the presence of Seyyed-Mohammad Al-e-Mahdi, translator of Al-Jaberi works to Persian, and philosophy expert Mohammad Othmani.
Emphasizing on the necessity of holding critical sessions, Shojai said: “By far a number of works by Al-Jabri are converted into Persian the latest of which is ‘Moroccan and Andelusian Philosophy’. Our body of philosophical society has paid little attention to Arab Islamic philosophers.”
He mentioned Mohammed Arkoun, Hassan Hanafi, Mohammed al-Jabri, and Nasr Abu Zayd as the most prominent Arab scholars whose approach to modern rereading of Islamic tradition of philosophy could offer a model for Iranian researchers.
The session will be held on Wednesday evening (17:00 o’clock), June 13, at the House of Literati located at No 2, Khajeh Nasir Street, South Palestine Avenue, Tehran.
