Anthony F. Shaker

Anthony F. Shaker is a philosopher, social theorist, and the author of Modernity, Civilization and the Return to History (Vernon Press, 2017). A specialist in Islamicate philosophy, he has lectured in Germany and Turkey. He has authored many books and papers, including three translated volumes from Ghazālī’s Iḥyāʾ and the only complete English study of Qūnawī. And he is presently working on a translation of Qūnawī’s magnum opus, Iʿjāz al-bayān (Equinox Press). His current research focuses on the idea that thinking is both the expression and the gathering of human civilization, and that productive dialogue in philosophy by tradition was not limited to armchair musings about concepts, beliefs or science.
