Henry Corbins discovery in an Istanbul library of the manuscript of a Persian translation of and commentary on Avicennas Hayy ibn Yaqzan, written in Arabic, led him to an analysis of three of Avicennas mystical recitals.

These form an initiatory cycle leading the adept along the path of spiritual progress. In Part I Corbin summarizes the great themes that show the philosophical situation of Avicennan man in the cosmos and presents translations of these three great Avicennan recitals. Part II is a complete translation, with notes, of the Persian commentary.Originally published in 1990.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
