Book Launch by Prof. Angelika Neuwirth
The recently published book of Mohammad Hasan Ahmadi (University of Tehran), has been launched by Professor Angelika Neuwirth at Paderborn University on Nov. 16. Published by University of Qom, "Hadith Studies and Historical Philology" provides Dr. Mohammad Hasan Ahmadi’s analysis of the 14 historical principles for Hadith analysis. This ceremony was happened through the Workshop on Scriptural Hermeneutics and Exegesis supported by Zentrum für Komparative Theologie und Kulturwissenschaften (ZeKK) which hosted by Prof. Dr. Klaus Von Stosch on Nov.16-17.
Hadith studies and Historical philology provides a new theory to overcome Hadith analysis difficulties historically and philologically. The subject discussed in the book would be best described as an example for Knowledge Edge in area of Islamic scriptural studies. The Historical Principles in Islamic Hadith Studies-in this work- are divided into three parts and would be discussed within 14 principles. Both Muslims and Christians, share the same difficulties in a methodical way of reading our scriptures. The present work is largely a respond to these difficulties we have in Islamic Scriptures - Hadith specially - structurally and semantically. The present book is meant as a challenge to propose a new solution, at least in part. The concern is only to develop a fruitful method of reading any divine text focusing on Islamic Hadith. This Book challenges the dominant scholarly notion that the Sunnah must be viewed through the Jurisprudence approach and through the Hadith which commonly shaped by the transmitters, proposing instead that the Hadith is best read in light of Historical approach and within Historical principles. The book can fill gaps in Islamic scriptural studies. The book is written for specialists in the Historical Theology field and interests a broader range of Islamic Text researchers. It meanwhile has the potential to be used as a textbook for Students of Qur’an and Hadith studies. The book does not limit to a singular idea although the main theory proposed here – if I am forced to do - are the Theory of Second Level of Arguing (SLA), Theory of Critical Point (CP) and Contrast Formula (CF).
