Abstract

Concluding our survey of major historical tendencies in the interpretation and reception of Ibn ʿArab{\=ı's writings in various traditions of later Islamic thought, as illustrated by recent translations and related studies, this final section deals with representative figures in the more philosophic "school" founded by Q{\=u}naw{\=ı (K{\=a}sh{\=a}n{\=ı, {\d H}. {\=A}mul{\=ı, and J{\=ıl{\=ı); in mystical poetry (J{\=a}m{\=ı, ʿIr{\=a}q{\=ı, and others) and philosophy (Mull{\=a} {\d S}adr{\=a} and his successors); and with the more recent Sufi writings of ʿAbd al-Q{\=a}dir al-Jaz{\=a}ʾir{\=ı, who recapitulates and integrates many of these traditions while returning to the spiritual sources and intentions underlying Ibn ʿArab{\=ı's own work and teaching.
