Quick Overview


In the Sufism of ancient Iran, the quest for the dawning of light in the cosmic North symbolizes the mystic's search for realization. In this spiritual journey, the light arising in man's inner darkness - the Northern Light or Midnight Sun - represents the impartial but brilliant light of Truth, that which sets us free from egotism and from slavery to material existence.

Henry Corbin
From the editor: Henry Corbin's The Man of Light in Iranian Sufism offers a penetrating analysis of the writings of the great Iranian masters - including Suhrawardi, Semnani, and Najm al-Din Kubra - in which he sees an unfolding and continuity of the idea of color and light as symbols of spiritual development

In the course of this study, Corbin constantly relates the ideas of Persian Sufism to the spiritual knowledge of other Middle and Far Eastern religions. A chapter is also devoted to Goethe's theory of physiological color. This intellectually exacting text goes beyond theoretical speculation: the combination of analysis and insight beckons the reader to apprehend the intuitive dimension of the material being discussed.
