Ibn Taymiyya and his Times

Yossef Rapoport and Shahab Ahmed

Studies in Islamic Philosophy

  • The motivation for the publication of this book has been the influence of Ibn Taymiyya on Wahabbi, Salafi and even terrorist groups. This volume tries to show that Ibn Taymiyya is a much more complex and interesting thinker than he portrayed to be, and that he is often misinterpreted or misunderstood by radical Islamist movements.
