New books by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić

Fordham University Press is to publish more translations of books by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić, the Bosnian public intellectual who is the leading representative of Traditionalism in the Balkans.

Fordham University Press has already published English translations of three books by Mahmutćehajić, of which the first was Learning from Bosnia: Approaching Tradition (2005).

The new books, due in 2009, are
  • Malo znanja: O drugim u muslimanskim vidicima. In this, "Mahmutćehajić discusses one of the key questions of the modern world: how to identify and articulate the justification for open, plural societies within the Muslim intellectual tradition."
  • Preko vode: uz pjesmu Maka Dizdara „Modra rijeka“. This is "the outcome of the author’s many years’ study of the relationship between the universal perspective of the perennial philosophy and the traditional Bosnian heritage."

Mahmutćehajić's publisher in Zagreb, Antibarbarus, has just published his Stolačka čaršija: U vidiku perenijalne filozofije ("The Stolac Čaršija: In the Light of the Perennial Philosophy"), which should be interesting, but is not--so far as I know--available in translation.
