The New Islamic Wisdom (insider wisdom)

Abdul Hosein Khosrowpanah

Islamic philosophers have chosen different approaches to define philosophy such as subject-centered, method-centered, goal-centered, question-centered and a combinational approach. The goal-centered definitions are either unpractical and vast or cannot distinguish between philosophical and non-philosophical matters. The method-centered definitions do not exclude non-philosophical matters as well. The subject-centered definitions are practical and determinative but they have other problems. Thus the new Islamic wisdom or the insider wisdom tries to find a new definition and structure for philosophy through human’s incorporated being.
