L.W.C. van Lit on Suhrawardi’s Dream of Aristotle

L.W.C. van Lit gave a talk in Gothenburg, Sweden to the Representation and Reality research group regarding his latest work and edition on Suhrawardi’s dream of Aristotle, together with ibn Kammuna and Shahrazuri’s commentaries.

“The focus of that next project is a dream Suhrawardī had, which he relates in al-Talwihat. What I would like to discuss with the group is the two commentaries on that dream by Ibn Kammūna and Shahrazūrī, both living in the 13th century. As you will notice, one was blatantly using the other. So the readings are not that much, since most of it feels like reading the same thing twice.” van Lit writes.
