GREATER BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, October 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The fourth book of Series of 12 books, “The Secret of Omar Khayyam,” was published by OKCIR Press, of the Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research, on October 1, 2021. In the book, sociologist and researcher Khayyami Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, Ph.D., offers a hermeneutical analysis of Khayyam’s last remembered philosophical treatise on the universals of existence.

“The Secret of Omar Khayyam: Hermeneutics of the Robaiyat in Quantum Sociological Imagination”, written by Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, is a series of 12 books of which the recently published book is the 4th volume, subtitled “Khayyami Philosophy: The Ontological Structures of the Robaiyat in Omar Khayyam’s last written treatise of remembrance on the science of the universals of existence. ” Each book, readable independently, can be better understood as part of the whole series.

After confirming in the three previous books of the series the true dates of birth and death of Omar Khayyam (1021-1123 AD), his pen name origins and his authorship of a robaiyat collection, Tamdgidi explores in this fourth book the origins, nature, and purpose of such a collection by applying the series’ quantum sociological imagination method to hermeneutically explore the ontological structures of Robaiyat in Khayyam’s last written treatise.

Khayyam’s treatise, found at the start of the 20th century and still largely ignored or poorly read, radically questions the mythical accounts built over the centuries about him as one who thought that existence is unknowable, having died without resolving its issues. puzzles. Oddly enough, his treatise instead offers a logically coherent and brilliant worldview of someone who has found their answers when it comes to human existence. Khayyam even goes so far as to say confidently that he hopes his peers will agree that his brief treatise is more useful than volumes.

Offering the Persian text and his new English translation of the treatise, Tamdgidi undertakes in this book a detailed hermeneutical study based on clauses of the treaty. It also explores its broader intellectual and historical contexts by examining its relationship to the book “Savior from Error” by Khayyam’s contemporary junior enemy (over three decades old), Muhammad Ghazali, while challenging the belief long-standing claim that the treaty was requested by and addressed to Fakhr ol-Molk, a son of the famous Vizier Nezam ol-Molk.

Tamdgidi instead finds that the treatise was written in 1095-1096 AD, a few years earlier than expected, for another son of Nezam ol-Molk, Moayyed ol-Molk, who at the time was serving Soltan Muhammad, the son of Malekshah. The treaty was intended as a philosophical foundation to move post-Malekshah Iran in a more independent direction by influencing its son, Muhammad. Ghazali in his book, probably written to please Ahmad Sanjar (Malekshah’s younger son who disliked Khayyam) and his then vizier, Fakhr ol-Molk, anonymously berated Khayyam as a philosopher, duplicatingly feeding the cynical metaphors that some theologians and Sufis were throwing at Khayyam over the centuries.

Khayyam’s treatise reveals his vision of existence as a participatory universe where the subject has an objective status, shedding new light on the ontological structures of Robaiyat. His ‘order of succession’ existence thesis is an alternative Islamic creation-evolutionist worldview that offers a premonitory quantum conceptualist view of the universe as a unitary, relatively autonomous, self-knowing and self-knowing substance. -creator, created with love by an absolutely good God person in his image. Existence is predominantly good but, due to its purposeful self-creating good nature, can potentially be subject to accidental flaws which are nonetheless knowable and curable to build both a spiritually fulfilled life and a joyful life in this world. Apart from the necessary Existence of God, there is no “other world”; the days of judgment, the heavens and the underworld are definitely real existences of this world, and not of the hereafter. From Khayyam’s point of view, human existence can be the good we artfully make of it, starting here and now from ourselves in our worldly lives. It is to creatively achieve such an existence that the Robaiyat must have been designed.

The 12-book series “The Secret of Omar Khayyam: Hermeneutics of Robaiyat in the Quantum Sociological Imagination” is published to celebrate the true millennium of the birth of Omar Khayyam (2021) and his next ninth centenary (2023). In previous books in the series, Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, a transdisciplinary sociologist of Iranian descent, reported his discovery of Khayyam’s true date of birth on June 10, 1021 AD, also reconfirming his true date of death on the day of his birth in JC. 1123 at the age of 102.

The various editions of this volume in paper version (paperback and hardback with dust jacket) and in EPub and PDF formats can be ordered from the Okcir Shop and major online bookstores around the world.

The enemy has wrongly said that I am a philosopher;
God knows I’m not what he said I am.
But as I came to this nest of sorrow, after all
Why can’t I at least know who I am myself?
