Coastweek — Dr. Nader El-Bizri from The Institute of Ismaili Studies and Professor Azim Nanji from Stanford University at the launch of the book “The Ikhwan al Safa and their Rasa’il: An Introduction”, on Sunday 14 June 2009.

The Ikhwan al-Safa’ or Brethren of Purity were a group of Muslim thinkers – based in Iraq – who produced, more than a thousand years ago, an encyclopaedia of 52 epistles on a wide array of subjects ranging from cosmology to mathematics and physical sciences, ethics to aesthetics, and revelation to metaphysics.
