Extract

Aziz Abbassi has rendered a useful service to scholars of contemporary Arab thought in providing the first English translation of the Moroccan philosopher Mohammed עAbed al-Jabri's writings. Al-Jabri is one of the leading voices in the discourse of cultural authenticity in the Arab world. Among his best-known works are Nahnu waءl-Turath (We and Our Heritage, 1980), al-Khitab al-עArabi al-Muءasir: Dirasah Tahliliyyah Naqdiyyah (Contemporary Arab Discourse: A Critical and Analytical Study, 1982), and Naqd al-עAql al-עArabi (Critique of Arab Reason, 1984–90). The present collection, translated from a French translation (from the original Arabic) published in 1994, includes selections from Nahnu waءl-Turath, as well as al-Jabri's reflections on patterns of reasoning in Arab philosophy. The choice of texts was made with the advice of al-Jabri.
