The 'Fusus al-Hikam' is acknowledged to be a summary statement of the sufi metaphysics of the 'Greatest Master', Ibn 'Arabi (d.1240). It is also recognised that the 'Fusus' is a work of great complexity both in its ideas and its style; and, over the centuries, numerous commentaries have been written on it. Each of the chapters of the 'Fusus' is dedicated to a Qur'anic prophet with whom a particular 'wisdom' is associated. In 'Sufi Metaphysics and Qur'anic Prophets: Ibn 'Arabi's Thought and Method in the "Fusus al-Hikam"', Ronald Nettler examines ten chapters from the 'Fusus' which exemplify the ideas, method and perspective of the entire work. Concentrating on a detailed analysis of the text, the author brings out the profound connection and integration of scripture and metaphysics in the world-view of Ibn 'Arabi. 'Sufi Metaphysics and Qur'anic Prophets' serves not only as an explication of Ibn 'Arabi's thought in the 'Fusus', but is also a great aid in the overall understanding of Ibn 'Arabi's thought.
