Both volumes take the place of honor on my desk, where it remains within reach for quick references. I loved reading about one of the richest intellectual traditions in the world from individual thinkers as well as philosophical ideas.

Over the years, I have used this book for my research, read bits and pieces that were relevant but this is the first time I have read it like a "book" from start to finish. I am so glad I did. Al-hamdu li'Llah.

"Bilmen gerekirki, mütemadiyen şehvetlerine öncelik tanıyıp onların müzmini olanlar, onlara dalıp gidenler neticede öyle bir noktaya erişirler ki, artık ne onlardan haz alabilirler, ne de onları terkedebilirler"
