“As Abdul-Hamid Khwaja put it, reason is untrue to itself if it does not lead to the ecstatic union.”


Read ‘Hayy Ibn Yaqzan’ by Ibn Tufayl and join us for a night at the pub to discuss it.

Ḥayy ibn Yaqẓān (Arabic: حي بن يقظان‎ “Alive, son of Awake”; Latin: Philosophus Autodidactus, “The Self-Taught Philosopher”; English: The Improvement of Human Reason: Exhibited in the Life of Hai Ebn Yokdhan) is an Arabic philosophical novel and an allegorical tale written by Ibn Tufail in the early 12th century.
