Itinéraires d'un soufi : Récits d'Ibn'Arabî (French Edition) by Sadik Yalsizuçanlar

By Sadik Yalsizuçanlar

Atypique, Ibn'Arabî certes le fut. Ce héros de roman bouscule les lois du style : en fouiller los angeles psychologie, couleur locale incluse, c'est manquer le mouvement perpétuel d'un coeur qui embrasse le Tout et se fait voyant. Cet esprit infatigable, mu par tous les skills, vers et prose confondus, qui précède de trois bons siècles l. a. Renaissance (Murcie, Andalousie, 1165 Damas, 1240) déconcerte le biographe, avec ses semelles de vent et son Livre sacré à l. a. major. Ce défi, un auteur turc de notre temps, le relève. Sadik Yalsizuçanlar, bannissant l'érudition, choisit de dérouler, mêlant los angeles première et los angeles troisième personnes, ce fil entêté de los angeles recherche du Vrai, de los angeles rencontre avec Averroès à Cordoue l'ami de los angeles famille à l'appel de l'immensité d'un monde arabe quasi infini, sans oublier l. a. formation acquise auprès d'une mère spirituelle castle importante. Cette Méditerranée jadis vouée à Ulysse reste le lieu des nostalgies, mais le soufi les transfigure, grâce à cette présence-absence que l'islam caractérise si bien comme un entre-deux, assumant ici-bas formes et signes et, de façon « imaginaire », l. a. sainteté (lui-même est dit « Sceau de l. a. sainteté »). los angeles poétique du déchiffrage du monde (huit cent cinquante ouvrages sont à son actif) cohabite constamment avec los angeles pratique d'une ascension systématique. Ces Itinéraires disent les aventures de l'esprit s'échappant de l. a. matière. l. a. lettre, le mot y sont les tools d'une autre cabale : los angeles relation quasi directe de l. a. créature et de Dieu est affaire de langage, d'amour, de contemplation une seule et même selected. Dieu n'est pas nouménal, le phénomène en soi est Dieu même. los angeles doctrine, tout compte fait infinie puissance de los angeles dialectique , dit los angeles présence absolue : ne serait-ce que parce qu'on peut être là et ailleurs, autrefois ou demain et maintenant, l. a. philosophie de ce fils de Platon s'éclaire d'un jour nouveau, soudain très surprenante, et très vivifiante, pour notre rationalisme.
