This second volume, out of three, contains the chapters 216 up to 320 of the alltogether 372 chapters. Based on the “”D?r al-yaqaza al-arabiyya (1966-1967) and on the manuscript of the Library of Alger, this translation has taken into account the work accomplished by Michel Chodkiewicz (Iditions du Seuil, 1982) and by A. Khursh?d (Alif Kditions, 1996). It deals with mystic comments on Quranic verses and prophetic translations inspired by Ibn Arabis work. This volume also contains long comments on the “”Futu??t. Chapter 248 deals with the synthesis of Shaykh al-Akbars view on the world, which helps to get an idea of this rather well organised vision, which is however often hard to understand.
