Quick Overview

Sharh ’Asas al-kiyasah is an important, yet little known, philosophical writing of Burhan al-Din Nasafi (d. 684/1286), a leading member of the intellectual School of Ma-wara’-al-nahr. In this work, Nasafi has followed the lead of the Peripatetics, notably Avicenna, in most philosophical issues.

The biographical sources mention Nasafi, first and foremost, as a
dialectician, due to his short treatise on the rules of jadal, al-Mughaddamat al-nasafiyah. Later in life, however, when he settled in Baghdad, teaching the intellectual and transmitted sci-ences, he was remarkably recognized as being well versed in philosophy. The famous historian Ibn al-Wardi (d.749/1349) described him as “the greatest master of philosophy in Baghdad.”

Nasafi`s main writings include: Sharh al-’Isharat wa al-tanbihat,
al-Mughaddamat al-nasafiyah, sharh al-’asma’ al-husna, and Makarim al-’akhlaq.
