March 11, 2019 by Religion Admin

Dr. Sayeh Meisami, who graduated from the DSR under the supervision of Prof. Virani, has just published Nasir al-Din Tusi: A Philosopher for All Seasons. The book explores the life and work of the mediaeval Persian polymath Nasir al-Din Tusi (d. 1274) within the historical and religious contexts in which he was active during the course of his eventful life. The study brings to light the philosophical character of all the different intellectual areas and genres of writing with which Tusi experimented, including metaphysics, theology, ethics, politics, astronomy, logic and aesthetics. Dr. Meisami is a recently tenured Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Dayton.
