Inevitable Doubt: Two Theories of Shīʻī Jurisprudence
In this volume, two classical texts of legal theory "(us?l al-fiqh)" are analysed. The authors of these works belonged to two schools of Sh?'? jurisprudence: Y?suf al-Ba?r?n? (d. 1186/1772) was a key figure in the "Akhb?r?" school, and his adversary, Mu?ammad B?qir al-Bihbah?an? (d. 1206/1791-2) was credited with the revival of the "Us?li" school and the defeat of Akhbarism after Ba?r?n?'s death. Through a comparison of the two writers' theories, this work describes the major areas of dispute between the two schools, examining how their different epistemologies lead to different conceptions of the sources and interpretation of the Shar?'a, God's law for humanity. This work will, then, be of interest to historians of Islamic thought generally, and Sh?'? thought and Islamic legal theory, in particular.
