09 / 1999 - 12 / 2003
This project is part of the broader research project "Why are human beings on earth". Mohammed Abed al-jabri (1936-) is a contemporary Moroccan thinker. He is famous for his large project 'The critique of the Arab Mind'. His maintheme, the reinstallment of rationality in Arab Thought, is criticized as well as welcomed both in- and outside the Arab world. The aim of this study is to analyse the anthropological background of al-Jabri's philosophical ideas. The extracted views on human life will be compared to humanist, hindoeist,Buddhist and Christian anthropologies.
