Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the extent to which Astarābādī's conversion to Akhbarism might be said to have influenced his theological and philosophical ideas. His conversion to Akhbarism produced a new (or perhaps, revived an old) juristic method. The chapter provides useful, though inevitably limited, evidence in a description of Astarābādī's intellectual method and its development. It is, perhaps, surprising that Astarābād wrote any works of kalām or falsafa after his conversion to Akhbarism. A survey of Astarābādī's theological output demonstrates that whilst he may have maintained a rhetoric critical of theology and philosophy, he was quite willing to enter into theological and philosophical argumentation without any reference to revelatory material. Astarābādī adopted a juristic methodo.

Keywords: Akhbarism; Astarābādī's; philosophy; theology
