Product description

Review

This is a genuine foundational work in Islamic studies. It is an open door into the very heart of Islamic civilization, while at the same time it suggests the bases of important comparisons and insights for those interested in cognate areas in Western cultures.
It is a fascinating, truly original work in both its guiding perspectives and its comprehensive, clearly presented account of a central dimension of Islam. There is nothing like it, and it deserves a wide audience. James W. Morris, Oberlin College
It clearly, competently, and comprehensively describes the worldview implicit in the medieval Islamic wisdom tradition represented by Sufism and Shi i philosophy, particularly the way that gender concepts are implicit in their cosmology and psychology, and can be related to the Taoist concepts of yin and yang. The author s critique of feminism and modern reformism on this basis is penetrating. Valerie Hoffman-Ladd, University of Illinois"
