In Search of the Sacred

Full Product Description

Seyyed Hossein Nasr is one of the preeminent philosophers writing today. Sure to be a key resource for decades to come, "In Search of the Sacred: A Conversation with Seyyed Hossein Nasr on His Life and Thought" illuminates Nasr's experiences and shares his insights on topics from religion and philosophy to science and the arts. Based on a series of interviews, the book combines traditional autobiography with an exploration of the intellectual and spiritual trajectories of the author's thought during key periods of his life. In doing so, it presents a fascinating panorama, not only of the life and ideas of one man, but also of major events ranging from intellectual life in Iran during the Pahlavi period and the Iranian Revolution to some of the major religious and intellectual debates between Islam and modernism. Nasr writes that his 'whole life has been a quest for the sacred'. This work connects that quest with some of the most important issues of the day in encounters between Islam and the West.

In Search of the Sacred by Seyyed Hossein Nasr was published by ABC-CLIO in July 2010 and is our 49718th best seller. The ISBN for In Search of the Sacred is 9780313383243.
