Title: Searching for the Ghazalian Soul: the Ethical Quality of the Philosophy of the Soul in Islam
Authors: Cebeci, Ahsen
Advisors: Lorenz, Hendrik
Department: Philosophy
Class Year: 2014
Abstract: This paper examines the nature of the discourse on the soul in Islamic philosophy. Using the scholarship of Imam abu Hamid al-Ghazālī as a case study, it argues that the discourse is primarily ethical, not metaphysical. Thus, it is fundamentally different from an analogous discourse within modern Materialist theory.
