Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Among Ibn 'Arabi's most controversial theories is the "oneness of being," a concept which is imbued with questions about the character of time and its relationship with the cosmos and its relationship with the Creator. Yousef (physics, United Arab Emirates U.) takes on this challenging question by comparing Ibn 'Arabi's approach with that of modern physics and cosmology. Yousef takes an interdisciplinary approach that includes philosophy, cosmology, physics and theology as he explains Ibn 'Arabi's concept of time and days, the significance of the divine week and its seven days, the actual flow of time, the nature of "unicity" and multiplicity, the Single Monad model of the cosmos and its implications for modern physics. Along the way he finds possible solutions for such awkward elements of current models as Zeno's paradoxes of motion and current discrepancies between quantum mechanics and relativity.

Synopsis:

This book is the first comprehensive attempt to explain Ibn ?Arab?'s distinctive view of time and its role in the process of creating the cosmos and its relation with the Creator. By comparing this original view with modern theories of physics and cosmology, Mohamed Haj Yousef constructs a new cosmological model that may deepen and extend our understanding of the world, while potentially solving some of the drawbacks in the current models such as the historical Zeno's paradoxes of motion and the recent Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox (EPR) that underlines the discrepancies between Quantum Mechanics and Relativity.
