1. Given that so many of the Old Believers seem to have left or are lying low on Twitter, I might as well get on with preaching to the Remnant Reprobate Heathen. Here’s some thoughts on #imagination from Henry Corbin, the great Shī’ite/Sufi scholar at The #Sorbonne, writ 1955-56.
2. “It may also seem misplaced to speak of spirituality in a study of the Imagination. We shall try to show in what sense this Imagination is creative: because it is essentially the ACTIVE Imagination … a theophanic* Imagination.” p. 6

* God-illuminating or manifesting.
3. “… the creative energy produced by the concentration of the heart (himma) … in studying Ibn Arabi’s ‘method of theophanic prayer’, the creative prayer that becomes dialogue, creative because it is at once God’s prayer and man’s prayer.” p. 40.

Dans cette vidéo, on entend un prof de droit de la #Sorbonne livrer de longs "avis personnels" homophobes et transphobes, ce qui est atterrant (et grave). Et, au milieu, une rapide référence discrète au Moyen Âge... Discrète, certes, mais révélatrice. Petit décryptage ⬇️
L'extrait concerné est celui-ci. A 1'34, le prof en question explique que bientôt viendront « probablement des pays nordiques » d'autres lois qu'il juge absurdes : après le mariage homosexuel, ce sera bientôt (dit-il) le tour du mariage zoophile !
(passons sur le fait qu'il s'agit d'une comparaison extrêmement insultante, mais surtout totalement idiote. Le mariage étant d'abord et surtout l'union légale de deux consentements, j'attends impatiemment le jour où une jument dira dans une mairie « oui, je le veux ! »)

A number of encounters made me think of the significance of #Hegel (1780-1831) as a bridge between premodern and modern philosophy in #Iran 1/ Image
The first was Hamid Enayat (1932-1982) the political philosopher whose memory was still relevant when I was a grad student at #Oxford and who had translated #Hegel into #Persian 2/ Image
The second was Karim Mojtahedy (d. 2019) whose work based on his #Sorbonne doctorate examined the #Qajar era encounter with #European philosophy and #Hegel starting in the circle of Comte de Gobineau (1816-1882), notorious race theorist and diplomat, in #Tehran 3/ ImageImage

Henri Bergson (1859-1941) and his processual approach to self, matter, creativity, intuition and free will had an influence not just on continental philosophy but also on #existentialism and #personalism in the #Islamicate milieu - a thread on #postcolonial #Bergson 1/ ImageImageImage
I first came across #Bergson notions of creativity, duration and time in the work of Muhammad Iqbal (1877-1938) in his Reconstruction (my copy as an undergrad) and Bedil in the Light of Bergson… 2/ ImageImageImage
Years later I came across the work of Souleymane Bachir Diagne and Abdennour Bidar (b. 1971) that indicated the abiding #postcolonial interest in #Bergson #Iqbal and #Lahbabi 3/ ImageImageImage
