Corbin begins with a kind of spiritual topography of the twelfth century, emphasizing the differences between exoteric and esoteric forms of Islam.


He also relates Islamic mysticism to mystical thought in the West. The remainder of the book is devoted to two complementary essays: Harold Bloom’s preface links Sufi mysticism with Shakespeare’s visionary dramas and high tragedies, such as Cofbin Tempest and Hamlet.

These works, he writes, intermix the empirical world with a transcendent element. Bloom shows us that this Shakespearean cosmos is analogous to Corbin’s “Imaginal Realm” of the Sufis, the place of soul or souls. Buy History Of Islamic Philosophy.
