Shows Nasafi and his legacy in a new light. Nasafi's works are of particular interest because they contain valuable descriptions of the different Islamic world views of the age. Includes substantial extracts to help illuminate this perceptive study of a neglected figure in the pantheon of Sufi thinkers.


'There are many virtues in this book, in particular the determination of Ridgeon to avoid the easy platitudes of much work on Sufism. Quite compelling excludes neither the mutakallimun nor even the falasifa as thinkers who have useful and valid points of view. Ridgeon has produced and intelligent and scholarly book which no-one concerned with Sufism can afford to miss. In fact the book would serve quite well as a general guide to many of the leading ideas of Sufism itself.' - Oliver Leaman, The British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies
