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