Persian civilisation has had a continuous tradition of philosophical thought lasting more than two and a half millennia. The fifth and final volume of An Anthology of Philosophy in Persia examines the seven centuries between the Mongol invasion and the end of the Qajar period. The volume is divided into three parts: 'The School of Shiraz,' whose importance for Ottoman Turkey and Muslim India is only now being recognized; 'The School of Isfahan,' which marks the integration of some eight centuries of Islamic thought; and finally 'The School of Tehran,' where traditional philosophy encountered modern thought in Persia. This volume is of the utmost significance for understanding the Islamic intellectual tradition not only in Persia but also in Ottoman Turkey and Muslim India.
