Postdoc position (24 months) for the project: “Avicenna East & West I: Commentaries on the Qaṣīdat al-nafs” (FRS-FNRS; UCLouvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium)

Project Description

The aim of this project on the commentaries on the Qasidat al-nafs attributed to Avicenna is twofold: (1) to provide a better understanding of how Avicenna’s theory on the soul was received, interpreted and transformed in this tradition of commentaries; and (2) to document the attitude towards Avicenna’s legacy, and falsafa in general, in Islamic society

Sub-projects:
(1) Edition and analysis of the commentaries by Baḥrānī (d. 672/1274); ‘Afīf al-Dīn Tilimsanī (d. 690/1291); Qayṣarī (d. 751/1350)
(2) Comparative analysis of the commentaries by Dāʼūd al-Anṭākī (d. 1599) and ʻAbd al-Raʼūf al-Munāwī (d. 1621)
(3) General analysis of the commentary tradition on the Qaṣīdat al-nafs

The postdoc researcher will be responsible for sub-project 2 (commentaries by Anṭākī and Munāwī) and participate in the other sub-projects. The successful applicant is also expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Institut supérieur de philosophie and to spend part of her/his time to pursue her/his own intellectual interests and to work creatively to produce new exciting research.
