  1. 1. ḥayy Ibn Yaqẓān by Ibn Tufayl

    "ḥayy Ibn Yaqẓān" is a philosophical novel that tells the story of Hayy Ibn Yaqzan, a child who is spontaneously generated on a desert island and raised by a doe. Growing up in isolation from human society, Hayy discovers knowledge through his own observations of nature and through rigorous reasoning. As he matures, he delves into profound inquiries about the nature of the human soul, the existence of God, and the path to true enlightenment. Eventually, he encounters another human being, which leads to a deep exploration of the differences between a life guided by pure reason and one shaped by societal norms and religion. The narrative serves as a meditation on the limits of human understanding and the pursuit of spiritual truth.
