  "description": "<p>After summarizing the idea associated with the term &lsquo;world of image&rsquo; within the discourse&nbsp;of Suhraward\u012b and his commentators, I discuss relevant terminology and argumentation&nbsp;in Ibn \u02bfArab\u012b&rsquo;s two major texts, al-Fut\u016b\u1e25\u0101t al-makkiyya and Fu\u1e63\u016b\u1e63 al-\u1e25ikam. This will&nbsp;show that to argue for a Suhrawardian influence&nbsp;requires interpreting certain passages&nbsp;very favorably, while ignoring the philosophical context in which Ibn \u02bfArab\u012b makes these&nbsp;remarks. I then do the same for Ibn \u02bfArab\u012b&rsquo;s most important early commentators,&nbsp;additionally pointing out that this issue was still further developed from commentator&nbsp;to commentator. I end with examples of how the two discourses perceived each other,&nbsp;namely, as largely in agreement on certain issues yet fundamentally different.</p>",
