Between Rationality and Ethicalness: Ibn Arabi’s Path to Good Ethics?

This research illustrates the characteristics of the complementary path between rationality and ethicalness towards good ethics. It considers the perspective of Ibn Arabi’s ethical heritage and the legitimacy of renewing this ethical thought in the context of a post-ethics culture. The research used an analytical and comparative approach to this subject, analyzing the ethics system of Ibn Arabi and exploring its methodological units, and demonstrating how rational science is an essential tool for pursuing ethics again. The research also examined Ibn Arabi's methodology for how to draw upon Greek ethical heritage. The research results demonstrated the legitimacy of establishing a dialectical dialogue between the ethical heritage of Ibn Arabi and the return of ethics. It also concluded the importance of research in the renewal of spiritual values derived from the ethical heritage of Ibn Arabi in the context of post-ethical culture whereby contemporary man worships pleasure and individualism. It suggests the importance of taking care of human spiritual values by renewing the prevailing educational curricula, which are dominated by the demands of utilitarian thought so that education becomes deeply rooted in the spiritual component of man rather than being limited to mental, psychological, physical and social constructs.

This research illustrates the characteristics of the complementary path between rationality and ethicalness towards good ethics. It considers the perspective of Ibn Arabi’s ethical heritage and the legitimacy of renewing this ethical thought in the context of a post-ethics culture. The research used an analytical and comparative approach to this subject, analyzing the ethics system of Ibn Arabi and exploring its methodological units, and demonstrating how rational science is an essential tool for pursuing ethics again. The research also examined Ibn Arabi's methodology for how to draw upon Greek ethical heritage. The research results demonstrated the legitimacy of establishing a dialectical dialogue between the ethical heritage of Ibn Arabi and the return of ethics. It also concluded the importance of research in the renewal of spiritual values derived from the ethical heritage of Ibn Arabi in the context of post-ethical culture whereby contemporary man worships pleasure and individualism. It suggests the importance of taking care of human spiritual values by renewing the prevailing educational curricula, which are dominated by the demands of utilitarian thought so that education becomes deeply rooted in the spiritual component of man rather than being limited to mental, psychological, physical and social constructs.
