Adressé au grand public, cet ouvrage s'efforce de faire le point sur l'une des figures majeures de la philosophie musulmane, Ibn Rochd (Averroès). Né à Cordoue en 1126, il est avant tout un homme de science. Théologien, philosophe, médecin et juriste : il s'intéresse à tous les domaines de la pensée. Il meurt en 1198 à Marrakech. Après avoir dépeint l'ambiance et l'époque dans lesquelles Averroès voit le jour, Abderrahim Bouzelmate nous offre dans cet essai une perspective originale : Que doit-on tirer des enseignements du philosophe de Cordoue ? Quelle a été sa postérité et comment pourrait-elle nous servir aujourd'hui, huit siècles plus tard ? En réalité, l'élite cultivée et les principales institutions intellectuelles et religieuses du Moyen-Age et de la Renaissance (en Occident) lisent et revisitent sa pensée durant des siècles. Réduit par les uns à un simple transmetteur de l'héritage grec à l'Occident, accusé par les autres d'athéisme, de philosophie dépravée et même de fondamentalisme religieux, Ibn Rochd, esprit libre et homme de foi, a pourtant poursuivi un but cohérent qui fut décisif dans l'histoire de la pensée. Ce livre tend à le démontrer : la raison épouse la foi.

Il volume restituisce al suo cromatismo originario la fisionomia dell'intellettuale musulmano. L'esposizione chiara e documentata del pensiero, aggiornata alle nuove frontiere della ricerca, mette in luce il debito verso la cultura andalusa e il duplice ruolo di testimonianza e di stimolo per un Islam aperto e civilizzatore nel cuore stesso dell'Occidente.

Averroes (1126–1198 CE) was the most famous and prolific commentator on Aristotle in all of medieval philosophy: 38 works are extant, at all levels of instruction. This concentration on Aristotle was not happenstance, instead, it reflects Averroes’ maturing philosophical outlook. For Averroes, Aristotle’s teaching came to represent the pinnacle of philosophical wisdom, and answers to all the most pressing problems in philosophy were to be found in a thorough and careful exploration of what that teaching truly implied. In the course of Averroes’ deepening investigations into Aristotelian lore, alternative interpretations were advanced and different traditions of thinking carefully laid side by side, producing a field guide to the Peripatetic tradition, as it was known to an Arabic scholar of the classical period. The resulting body of texts represents a high watermark in Aristotelian synthesis and systematization, even if Averroes failed in the end to resolve satisfactorily all the problems that had accumulated over the centuries. In addition to his Aristotelian Commentaries, Explications, and Compendia (which, besides Aristotle, encompassed works by Plato, Galen, Ptolemy, and al-Ġazālī), Averroes wrote smaller, independent essays and questions that explored contested issues in Aristotelian teaching; polemical works that argued the religious innocence and intellectual respectability of Peripatetic philosophy, correctly understood; and medical and legal treatises of solid but unspectacular standing. Averroes’ reputation was made in Latin Scholasticism and in Jewish circles of learning, while in the Arabic world his works fell mostly by the wayside. Today, his name is evoked in the Arabic world as a rallying-point for a rationalist Islam – a fitting legacy, if not always especially well grounded (modern-day Averroists displaying at best a cursory knowledge of the Commentator’s philosophy).

In the course of Averroes’ deepening investigations into Aristotelian lore, alternative interpretations were advanced and different traditions of thinking carefully laid side by side, producing a field guide to the Peripatetic tradition, as it was known to an Arabic scholar of the classical period. The resulting body of texts represents a high watermark in Aristotelian synthesis and systematization, even if Averroes failed in the end to resolve satisfactorily all the problems that had accumulated over the centuries. In addition to his Aristotelian Commentaries, Explications, and Compendia (which, besides Aristotle, encompassed works by Plato, Galen, Ptolemy, and al-Ġazālī), Averroes wrote smaller, independent essays and questions that explored contested issues in Aristotelian teaching; polemical works that argued the religious innocence and intellectual respectability of Peripatetic philosophy, correctly understood; and medical and legal treatises of solid but unspectacular standing. Averroes’ reputation was made in Latin Scholasticism and in Jewish circles of learning, while in the Arabic world his works fell mostly by the wayside. Today, his name is evoked in the Arabic world as a rallying-point for a rationalist Islam – a fitting legacy, if not always especially well grounded (modern-day Averroists displaying at best a cursory knowledge of the Commentator’s philosophy).

This concentration on Aristotle was not happenstance, instead, it reflects Averroes\u2019 maturing philosophical outlook. For Averroes, Aristotle\u2019s teaching came to represent the pinnacle of philosophical wisdom, and answers to all the most pressing problems in philosophy were to be found in a thorough and careful exploration of what that teaching truly implied.
