The “Islam: Tradition and Modernity” series is published by the “Sadra” publishing house with the support of the Islamic Culture Research Foundation. It is meant to introduce the reader to a wide range of issues that arose throughout the entire existence of Islamic thought.
Two books have been published within this series: “Imam Mahdi – Savior of Humanity” and Henry Corbin’s “History of Islamic philosophy”, well-known to Russian and foreign readers. The latter was issued with the involvement of most reputable representatives of the Institute of Philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Its science editor is Yanis Eshots, one of the leading experts in classical Islamic mysticism (irfan).
