Séminaire : CEFREPA Lectures : “HUWIYYA.” Identity in classical Arab philosophy”, 11/04/2021, en ligne (17h00).

Huwiyya is an abstract noun from the pronoun huwa (he), and comes directly from the lexicon of Hellenistic learning. Literally meaning “he-ness”, it was the response of Arabic translators to the problem of trying to formulate a term to delineate the nature of God’s existence. In this short talk, I will give a brief history of this term, and then elaborate on how the term was adopted and its meanings expanded by arguably the most influential Sufi thinker in Islam, Muhyi al-Din ibn ‘Arabi (d. 638/1240), and then, by his disciple, ‘Abd al-Razzaq al-Qashani (d. 736/1335?).

Dr. Ismail Lala is Assistant Professor at GUST (Kuwait). He is a specialist of Islamic philosophy. He is the author of Knowing God: Ibn ‘Arabi and ‘Abd al-Razzaq al-Qashani Metaphysics of the Divine (Brill, 2019).
