  • The World of Persian Literary Humanism by Hamid Dabashi
    The World of Persian Literary Humanism (English, Hardback) Hamid Dabashi

    Humanism has mostly considered the question "What does it mean to be human?" from a Western perspective. Dabashi asks it anew from a non-European perspective, in a groundbreaking study of 1,400 years of Persian literary humanism. He presents the unfolding of this vast tradition as the creative and subversive subconscious of Islamic civilization.
