لولا الخيال لكنا اليوم في عدم * ولا انقضى غرض فينا ولا وطر

[ثلاثة أنماط من الحبّ]

بوصف الخيال الفعّال أو الخلاق هو الملكة الوسيطة التي يحددها ابن عربي كـ (حضرة خيالية) ، بواسطتها تبلغ جدلية الحبّ أوجها ، فبعد البحث عن المحب الحقيقي تفتح لنفسها سبيل البعد فيما وراء المحسوس كي تكتشف من هو المحبوب الواقعي.

وبما أن الحبّ -في جميع أشكاله- محركه الأول هو الجمال ، يتمثل موضوعه هنا حصرا في الله والله "جميلٌ يحبّ الجمال" وانكشف لذاته فأنتج العالم كمرآة يتأمل فيها صورته وجماله كما يوحي بذلك الحديث المنتشر ع

A profound and important book. Here's what I wrote in my blog about it:
I just finished reading Henry Corbin's 1969 book, Creative Imagination in the Sufism of Ibn 'Arabi. (This was the title of the earlier edition.) It had been sitting on my shelf for over two years. I'm glad it waited for me, because what I learned is something that I've always wanted to know--the imagination is REAL. It's not make-believe. We're not "just imagining" something, we're not making it up. Imaginary things actually

After reading this book, I felt like a great secret had been kept from me by present-day religious scholars. Corbin gets full marks as a scholar; he recognizes he is dealing with a specific type of knowledge that has been both accepted and rejected by different parts of the surrounding faith community. While he conveys this "social" information to the reader, what is more important to him is to initiate the reader into what Ibn 'Arabi saw, and the result is an amazing, passionate encounter with ...more

الكتاب مترجم من الإنجليزية ونقله للعربية فريد الزاهي. كبداية الترجمة واضحة وسلسلة لكن الكتاب ملئ بالأخطاء المطبعية. يقدم كوربان في كتابه السيرة الذاتية لابن عربي وفي نفس الوقت يحلل الأفكار الصوفية ويوضح كيف تتشابه مع أفكار التشيع. يقوم بعدها بمقارنة هذه الأفكار في الباطنية ومايقابلها من باطنية في المسيحية. يبدأ الكتاب باستهلال يقدم فيه الكاتب لسيرة ابن عربي والرموز التي أثرت فيه بعدها ينفسم الكتاب لفصلين مكونين من عدة أبواب. الفصل الأول ” التناسب والمألوهية” وفيه باب الإلهي بين الانفعال والرحمة ...more

Recommends it for: college-level readers
Henry Corbin breathes life and depth into his subject matter. There are more interesting revelations in this book than in any dozen mass market pop spirituality books. Ibn Arabi was an informed Universalist who found the common threads between Islam, Judaism and Christianity while living in Moorish Spain. Breathtaking book on Sufi mysticism.

Actually i am rereading this as most of Corbin's books are impossible to get it all first time out. Corbin is great at capturing the poetic qualities of his subject and is attentive to how these ideas are often interpreted in the west. He will pose the original idea -how, what these ideas mean to us , then explain that this is not what is meant and slowly unveil what he finds at the core. This one examines one of the prominent figures of Sufism that was eclipsed by the philosophical schism betwe ...more

بما إن ترجمة الكتاب معقدة ولا أدري ما السبب، اضطررت لقراءة الكتاب قراءة صوفية، الكتاب مهم ولولا الترجمة لكان الموضوع أكثر متعة. وأنقص نجمتين من الكتاب لما سهوت بالترجمة والقراءة.

I read the Bollingen paper edition of 1981 and was hurled into new worlds (and parallel) worlds.

Yes, yes, and then yes. This book is a perfect introduction to Ibn Arabi.
Jan 06, 2014 Debra rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Corbin is fascinating, though not an easy read. Well worth the effort though.

This book is primarily about the Islamic Sufi, Ibn Arabi, and his writings about the sufi experience of a metaphysical reality as experienced in the practice of prayer, meditation and what Corbin refers to as Active Imagination.

The book describes the modes of being, from our physical world on up to the God that is indivisible and at the same time includes the other three modes of being. Through the Sufi practice, one en

In the last six weeks, I've read half a dozen rip-roaring SF novels, a quantity of poetry and this. Alone with the Alone is probably the densest book I've read in about 10 years. I'd say I've understood about one word in eight. But passage after passage stick and cling and I suspect I'll be returning to it often. The subject - the creative imagination in the Sufism of Ibn 'Arabi - is a misnomer and might be more accurately phrased "the religious imagination" or "the sacred imagination". This wou ...more

Three years later he took ...more

“between the universe that can be apprehended by pure intellectual P.erception (the universe of the Cherubic Intelligences) and the universe perceptible to the senses, there is an intermediate world, the world of Idea-Images, of archetypal figures, of subtile substances, of "immaterial matter." This world is as real and objective, as consistent and subsistent as the intelligible and sensible worlds; it is an intermediate universe "where the spiritual takes body and the body becomes spiritual," a world consisting of real matter and real extension, though by comparison to sensible, corruptible matter these are subtile and immaterial. \The organ of this universe is the active Imagination; it is the place oftheophanic visions, the scene on which visionary events and symbolic histories appear in their true reality.\ Here we shall have a good deal to say of this universe, but the word imaginary will never be used, because with its present ambiguity this word, by prejudging the reality attained or to be attained, betrays an inability to deal with this at once intermediate and intermediary world.” 2 likes
“The individual is identified with the perishable; what can become eternal in the individual pertains exclusively to the separate and unique active Intelligence.” 2 likes
