PROLEGOMENA TO THE METAPHYSICS OF ISLAM- An Exposition of the Fundamental Elements of the Worldview of Islam
PROLEGOMENA TO THE METAPHYSICS OF ISLAM An Exposition of the Fundamental Elements of the Worldview of Islam Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas Knowledge is not entirely a property of the human mind, and that the sciences derived from it are not the products solely of unaided human reason and sense experience possessing an objectivity that precludes value judgement. Knowledge and the sciences need guidance and verification from the statements and general conclusions of revealed Truth, it is incumbent upon scholars and the learned among us who are entrusted to teach and to educate to acquaint themselves with a clear understanding of the metaphysics of Islam and of the permanently established constituent elements of the world-view derived from it. This is because that metaphysics is not only established upon reason and experience as reflected in the intellectual and religious tradition of Islam, but also upon the articulation of the revealed religion itself about the nature of reality and of truth in verification of the Revelation. This book sets forth preliminary discourses on the nature of the metaphysics of Islam.
