Tariq Jafer, Razī: Master of Qurʾanic Interpretation and Theological Reasoning

Friedman, Rachel Anne

F akhr al-Dīn al-Rāzī (d. 606/1209) has been the subject of much recent scholarship that has afrmed his importance as an innovative thinker, who had a hand in advancing the many disciplines in which he wrote. Tariq Jafer’s new book stands on the shoulders of long-standing work by the likes of Ignaz Goldziher and Josef van Ess, as well as scholars who have recently written on al-Rāzī including Ayman Shihadeh and Michel Lagarde. Jafer adds valuable insights to the available work on this towering fgure in Islamic intellectual history.
