            Medieval Islamic Pragmatics: Sunni Legal Theorists' Models of Textual Communication
             

            Medieval Islamic Pragmatics: Sunni Legal Theorists' Models of Textual Communication (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Ali, Muhammad M. Yunis

            • To Order

            This book deals with two different pragmatic approaches to textual communication: (i) the mainstream approach followed by the 'Ash'ari s, Hanafi s and Mu'tazili s, (ii) the salafite approach followed mainly by the Hanbali s, defended and elaborated by Ibn Taymiyyah. One of the pr...imary aims of the book is to explore and formulate several Muslim legal theorists' pragmatic theories, communicative principles and linguistic views, construct them in the form of models and set them within a general uniform framework. Another aim is to reveal a corpus of information and data which, though highly relevant to modern pragmatics, is still unknown. This study, which can be seen as an extensive introduction to 'medieval Islamic pragmatics', is the first attempt to examine the approaches followed by the Salafi s or the mainstream from a pragmatic viewpoint. There has been no attempt to explain the principles and the strategies utilised by the medieval Sunni Muslim legal theorists in their account of how communication works and how successful interpretation is achieved. Of course, a lot of work has been done on different Islamic sects and their different positions over the interpretation of the Quran and Sunnah, but these studies fall short of delving into the underlying communicative principles that motivate their differences over interpretation. The author's formulation of the Muslim legal theorists' views is enhanced by setting up a reliable theoretical foundation and by delving into their underlying philosophical principles. This involves relating the legal theorists' insights into interpretation and communication to their relevant ontological, epistemological and theological outlooks, and comparing these insights with their modern pragmatic counterparts.

            THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESS provides a detailed practical introduction to the structure and function of the legal system from the perspective of the professional non-lawyer. Unlike other books it does not get bogged down in the complexities of the law, but tries to focus, i...n a very straightforward manner, on the core legal concepts most essential for business managers to know. Rather than conveying the material in the dry, serious manner of many other legal environment books, the text uses a reader-friendly style and frequent points of humor and levity to make it much easier for the key ideas to come across.
