The objective of PhilAnd is to conduct a large-scale exploration of how, and under which form, philosophy appeared for the first time in al-Andalus. At the crossroads of several major lines of enquiries in modern scholarship and in line with recent discoveries having important chronological implications, PhilAnd focuses on the 10th century, a period usually disregarded by historians on the assumption that philosophy as such was not cultivated in the Iberian Peninsula before the 11thth centuries.

This chronology is currently far from clear. This will fill an important gap and provide a valuable resource for the study of Islamic mysticism in al-Andalus. The qualifications required for any of these sub-projects are: a PhD in Islamic Studies, in Middle Eastern Studies, or related fields; an excellent command of Classical Arabic the knowledge of additional languages such as ancient Greek, Latin and in particular Hebrew is considered an advantage ; a first-rate track record and research experience; publications of articles in peer-reviewed international journals or monographs with recognized academic publishers; academic writing and presentation skills in English the working language of the project ; the ability to work both individually and as part of a team.

These three post-doc positions are full-time equivalent. They are offered for a period of 12 months, renewable twice three years in total upon good performance.

The post-docs retained will be required to reside in Belgium for the whole period of their fellowship. How to apply?

Ibn Massarra

In a hermitage he had founded for his friends and disciples in the Sierra of Cordoba, Ibn Masarra undertook to instruct them in his doctrines, to initiate them into the use of esoteric knowledge and to practice zuhd asceticism through acts of penance and devotion. His success came from a Socratic style of pedagogy as well as a charismatic personality and skill in communication. After his death the jurists carried out a veritable persecution of his disciples; who had formed themselves into an ascetic order, the Masarriya, in Cordoba and later in Almeria. Both are short tracts which have provided a better understanding of his thought, but because of their conciseness they raise new questions. Doctrines M.
