Scholars are recently recognizing the work of al-Rāzī as the turning point of this intellectual trend that combines together crucial elements of Avicennian philosophy with the broader Ashʿarite framework; accordingly, scholars agree that the philosophical and theological debates of the 13th and 14th century intellectual centres of Tabriz, Damascus and Cairo revolved around the Avicennian and Razian corpuses.Although al-Rāzī’s influential works on kalām, ḥikma and logic, such as the Muḥaṣṣal, the Mulakhkhaṣ, and the al-Āyyiāt al-bayyināt fī-l-manṭiq are known to have become widespread madrasa manuals, their reception by the following generation of scholars remains to date unexplored.For long, many scholars of Islamic civilizations such as von Grunebaum and more recently Aḥmad Dallal, have understood debate as a sign of the inextricable conflict between two epistemologies, namely the religious and the scientific.This approach has prompted the labeling of the religious approach on scientific knowledge as semi-scientific, apologetic and non-positive.Abstract: This paper investigates the relation between scientific thought and religious hermeneutics in the Quranic exegesis of the Persian polymath Fakhr al-dīn al-Rāzī (d. More specifically, I will be exploring his attempt of reconciliation between scientific rationalism and religious dogma.One of the major points of debate between pre-modern Muslim scientists-philosophers and theologians revolves around the division between orthodox Quranic sciences and its heterodox Hellenistic counterparts.In the present case, al-Rāzī’s exegesis of Quranic verses that expound Islamic cosmology relies on a sophisticated scientific discussion of theoretical astronomy (‘ilm al-hay’a) rather than traditional accounts.Al Rāzī’s commentary on the sūrat al-Baqara 4 is the locus of introduction for a general description of the Ptolemaic cosmos.

My main field of research is Islamic philosophy, logic, Arabic literature (Classic and Modern) Arabic literary criticism, History of the Middle East.This paper investigates al-Rāzī’s tripartite nature of human language into respectively kalām lafẓī, kalām (or ḥukm) dhihnī and kalām nafsī and their relationship with the elements that compose human language, namely sounds, letters and concepts, as well as their role in differentiating human and divine speech.Paper presented at the 7th Mc Gill-CREOR Graduate Conference: "Religious Ideas and Scientific Thought" - September 25th-26th - Mc Gill University - Montreal.He is serving as the Chief Scientist at Tinder Inc., leading the research and innovation for the world’s largest dating and social discovery app valued over 10 Billion US$.
