Body and spirit in early Islamic theology
21/11/2017 2:00pm
 

This paper will offer a broad interpretation and classification of anthropological theories in early systematic theology (that is, late-8th and 9th-century kalam), and will then show how one theory became dominant in classical kalam (roughly in the 10th and 11th centuries). The paper will argue that anthropological theories were, first and foremost, dictated by more fundamental theological doctrines, particularly doctrines concerning the nature of God and general ontology, but also took account of scriptural eschatology.
