ARABIC LITERATURE II (AB5070)

This course continues the exploration of Arabic literature, integrating increasingly more pieces from the classical period (the first Adab era, Adab taken here as humanities). Frequenting the classical Arabic adab allows the students to deepen their linguistic knowledge and to see more precisely how the lexicon evolved through the ages and, therefore, to better understand how terms and concepts moved from one field of application to nother (history, philosophy, poetry, religion, geography narrations, tales, akhbar, etc.). Linguistic knowledge is here deeply related to history of thought and representations through texts reveal a certain conception of the world and humanity.
