Alone with the Alone: Creative Imagination in the Sufism of Ibn 'Arabi

Princeton University Press, Princeton. (ISBN: 9780415442619).

In this volume Henry Corbin emphasizes the differences between the exoteric and esoteric forms of Islam. He also reveals that whereas in the West philosophy and religion were at odds, they were inseparably linked, at least during this period, in the Islamic world. A valuable section of notes and appendices includes original translation of numerous Sufi treatises.
