PhD Research

This PhD investigates how Ibn ‘Arabi’s religious hermeneutics serve as a foundation for a religiosity that comes into being through the nihilistic secular and modern worldview. It looks a Nietzsche’s project: the transvaluation of values, in light of the ‘Death of God’, and henceforth will assess Ibn ‘Arabi’s hermeneutics accordingly. Nietzsche posited the Ubermensch as the essence of this project of transvaluation, and the dissertation will assess if Ibn ‘Arabi’s concept of the ‘Complete Man’ can fulfil Nietzsche’s concept of the Übermensch.
