Sameer Ali

Sameer Ali (Stanford University), “Ethics and Philosophy in the Nuzhat-nama-i ‘Ala’i of Shahmardan b. Abi al-Khayr al-Razi”

Abstract: This presentation seeks to examine the ethical precepts and practical philosophy in the Nuzhat-nama, which was written in the late 11th century in Iran under the patronage of the Kaykuyid prince Abu Kalijar Garshasp. The author, Shahmardan b. Abi al-Khayr al-Razi, borrows the title from Ibn Sina’s work, the Danish Nama Alayi and circulates the latter’s explanation of cosmology and philosophy. Al-Razi also includes a tract from Ibn Miskaywah on ethical behavior and domestics. In addition, this presentation seeks to investigate the descriptive aspects of the manuscript and articulate methodologies for studying and comparing manuscripts.
