Description

This session analyzes how premodern thinkers delineated the epistemic scope, force, and limits of thought in philosophical, theological, and literary discourses. It aims to reassess the applicability of the category "synthesis" in describing the imbrication of different traditions of thought, most notably in the case of Islamic and Christian reception of the Aristotelian corpus.
