FAHRADDIN AR-RAZI IN THE TRANSFORMATION AGE OF ISLAMIC THOUGHT

 

Ed. Ömer TÜRKER - Osman DEMİR

       Fahraddin ar-Razi (b. 606/1210) was the first and most influential figure of what is called the Second Classical Age. It was in this “age” of Islamic Thought that the works and ideas of the pre-Ghazali period were reinterpreted and transformed in terms of their thought and content. Razi, who wrote lots of works especially in the fields like kalam and philosophy, identified the characteristics of the universal disciplines and deserved to be titled as ‘al-Imam’ since he rearranged the ilm al-kalam. This book, which aims at introducing Fahraddin ar-Razi from various aspects, is a compilation full of original articles which discuss thoroughly the scientific accumulation of Islamic Studies in Turkey and thusly aims at being a source for interested researchers. The work is composed of four main sections: Razi’s life, Razi’s works, his place in the history of Islamic thought and his contributions to this area, and finally the criticisms he received. All these sections are examined in the book considering pre-Razi and post-Razi periods so that his originality, his methodological difference and the transformation he started is pointed out.
