Moser, Kata (2014). Martin Heidegger in der Rezeption von Ṣifāʾ ʿAbd as-Salām Ǧaʿfar – Zeitgenössische Überlegungen zum Verhältnis von Philosophie und Theologie. Asiatische Studien, 68(1):357-371.

Abstract

Ṣifāʾ ʿAbd as-Salām Ǧaʿfar is a contemporary Egyptian philosopher
working mainly on the German philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889–1976). One
of her concerns is the question of the relationship between philosophy and theology.
This paper is the first to introduce Ǧaʿfar and her writings on Heidegger’s
theology to a non-Arabic audience and traces her line of argument on the question
of philosophy and theology of Heidegger. The paper starts with an allusion to
Heidegger’s early involvement in theology, which Ǧaʿfar considers to be the point
of origin and reference throughout his different phases of thinking. Heidegger’s
main work of his early period, Time and Being , is then pointed out as a preliminary
to the true theology, which Ǧaʿfar calls non-traditional. On grounds of
Heidegger’s later works, and especially based on a comparison between Plotin
and Heidegger, Ǧaʿfar claims that Heidegger’s theology can be considered to be
close to mysticism. This paper highlights that Ǧaʿfar participates with her argument
in current debates on Heidegger’s thoughts on theology and philosophy.
In doing so she opens up a new ground for the Arabic dialogue with Heidegger
dating back to the 1950s. This paper, in turn, aims to open the Arabic reception of
Heidegger as a new field of inquiry by focusing on its theological aspect.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
