Unsaying God

Negative Theology in Medieval Islam

Aydogan Kars

AAR Academy Series

  • Presents a broad analysis of various disciplines and schools to unearth diverse negative theological trends that flourished in the first seven centuries of Islam
  • Features significant conceptual and methodological interventions to the modern approaches to negative theology and apophaticism at large, making it relevant to a broad audience beyond Religious Studies
  • Sheds light on the theological osmosis that took place between scholars of different schools, sects, and religions-Jews and Muslims in particular. It demonstrates that negative theologies were an integral component of a shared, interconfessional intellectual heritage
