Description from the publisher:
Seyyed Hossein Nasr is an extraordinary scholar and thinker of Ibn Sina's and Suhrawardi's caliber, the like of whom appears once in many generations. He has always been an educator, yet he has addressed in a powerful and systematic way a much broader audience than his students, teaching not only issues of religious and spiritual nature, but also the relationship between religion and science, the spiritual crisis of modern man, the environmental crisis, fallacies of modernism and fundamentalism and other political issues. No other scholar, Muslim or non-Muslim, has done so much to revive the intellectual dimensions of traditional civilizations, including Islam.
No other contemporary teacher's writings have been translated into so many different languages, nor have they found as many readers as Nasr's works have, in countries as diverse as Malaysia, Turkey, Australia, and Indonesia, in addition to European countries and the United States. In this book three generations of Professor Nasr's students have come together to pay tribute to a teacher who has been recognized as 'one of the major intellects of our time'. The diversity in age and background of these students, in a sense, reflects Dr. Nasr's profound impact on the international intellectual community that expands far beyond the boundaries of the Muslim world.
