Ibn Hazm is no longer an obscure thinker hidden in the backwoods of history. Here, twenty-three well-written and researched essays examine his life and times, aspects of his legal career, and turn to his Zahiri linguistics, art and aesthetics, theology, philosophy and ethics, interreligious polemics, reception, formative years, personal and family relationships, his conflicts with al-Andalus, on history, and gender politics. Especially amusing is the account of his work as a Zahiri grammarian, given his suspicion of grammarians. Other topics include Aristotle and Ibn Hazm, his logical pedigree, his take on sin and salvation, his refutations of Christianity, polemics, and the Jewish zondiq, transmission of his works, disavowals from North Africa, acceptance and rejection, Shi'ite savants, and the reception of Ibn Hazm in Arabic chronicles. Hazm was quite a charmer, and these entries reflect it. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
