    Here we are, introducing the tenth issue of the House of Philosophy Magazine, pursuing, painstakingly and in earnest, the path towards foregrounding philosophy in our Arab world. This process is nothing but featuring philosophy in a discourse that addresses the problems in the realms of our life, conceptually and practically, taking into account the fact that Arab philosophical awareness is still making our ancestors’ philosophical heritage a subject of consideration, narration, and even questioning.
    This is not surprising, simply because there is no nation that does not make its cultural heritage a subject for consideration and reconsideration. However, the current philosophical examination of our philosophical legacy is not an act of repetition, glorification, or pride. Rather, it is a dialogue with the ancestors, which is not selective, fabricated, or slavish. That is why the focus of the tenth issue bears the title, ‘Readings in Middle Arab Philosophy’. In this context, we do not need to explicate the concept of reading, as it has become uncontroversial that reading is a type of re-writing.

    Philosophical problems always arise from questions. The sign of this is that a philosophical question does not prompt one absolute answer. Rather, the answers vary according to the diversity of the perspectives of philosophers. One of these problems is the problem of alienation, which necessarily arises from the question: what is the relationship that a person has established with his lived world? The question may be phrased in other words as follows: what is the human being in his relationship with the lived world, as from a blue-collar worker to the thinker who contributes to putting forth awareness of the world? If the history of philosophy has dealt with alienation from multiple perspectives, the question of alienation in our lived world and in societies diverse with their cultures, mentality, life, and needs has produced new forms of alienation, without abandoning the old forms thereof. Feuerbach’s perspective on alienation is still able to understand contemporary alienation. However, in the age of ideologies, we can claim that alienation, in its authoritative concept has become one of the features of universal ideologies, not to mention that the inability to meet needs throws man into painful alienation.

    This is why the focus of this issue of the Magazine is alienation. In keeping with the tradition of our Magazine, this issue includes a research on contemporary philosophy as a dialogue with phenomenology, which still impacting the philosophers of our time, in addition to the dialogue with Ibn Khaldun and his perspective of history, in addition to readings in published, old, and other books.

    Indeed, philosophy tries to uncover the concealed causes behind the crises

    of the present, and to show the extent of their impact on the potentials of

    creators in all disciplines, and how to get rid of them. It is true that we do

    not live in a country that is currently in crisis, as the movement of building

    life and people in the UAE is moving at a steady pace, but we are part of

    the world, and an active part in it. We influence it and we are affected by

    it, and for this it is very necessary to put in the hands of our young people

    the deepest knowledge of what is happening in this world, not only to

    contribute to the protection of our homeland from any negative effects

    of the world›s problems, but also to continuously contribute creatively

    to building the future. We are a people who create tomorrow based on

    moral values, scientific ambitions, faith in the capabilities of our youth,

    their determination, their awareness, and their culture. We are a country

    that links all the aspirations of its youth to tomorrow, and provides them

    with preparation, planning and implementation.

    Interest in the concept of recognition is not old, though it has been addressed in one form or another

    by many philosophers and has, in contemporary philosophy, occupied a status that reached the point

    of talking about the philosophy of recognition. We propose the concept of recognition as an axis

    because recognition is a theoretical and practical problem at the same time; rather, it is a practical

    problem that we try to conceptualize and present a philosophical discourse on. Human relationships

    cannot be imagined without states of recognition that also generate states of non-recognition. What

    compels a person or a group to recognize and remove recognition? This means—in answer to this

    question—we must examine the status of recognition in the world of values, the world of interests, and

    the world of ideological and political affiliations. The concepts of fanaticism, racism, selfishness, envy,

    and negation are present in human life as negations of recognition. This brings us to those values that

    create a culture of recognition, which can only triumph by recognizing the right to difference because

    the most significant problem is that of accepting or rejecting the different. Acceptance of the right to

    difference means recognition, and its denial only means that the other is no longer recognized, which

    is why many human conflicts are based on non-recognition. This is evident in the fact that ideological

    justifications of interests hide behind a discourse that validates the negation of the other, especially

    if the ideology held by a group of people involves the idea of possessing absolute truth and negating

    other truths. In this sense, recognition is not based on illusion; rather it is illusion that is the source of

    negation and non-recognition.

    In our contemporary world, and especially in our Arab world, recognition is teetering under the blows

    of all forms of various negations, which is why we have chosen the concept of recognition as the main

    focus of our issue.

  • 7st Issue of Philosophy House’s Journal 0.00 AED

    The publication of the seventh issue of our magazine House of Philosophy coincides with the inauguration

    of the House of Philosophy building. The significance of this event is manifold. It is a unique phenomenon in

    the world of contemporary philosophy. The House of Philosophy is not an academic or university institution,

    but rather an intellect/nous for generating concepts and ideas. Truly, it is a place that attracts Arab and global

    philosophers, serving as a bridge of communication with all that is created in the world of contemporary

    philosophy. Additionally, it is closely linked to philosophy and lived reality, a connection which forms the

    primary concern of the House of Philosophy in Fujairah. Thus, the seventh issue of the magazine House of

    Philosophy, which contains several diverse articles, revolves around a central theme related to the lives of

    people, society, and the state, namely, “Goals and Interests.”

    That we make truth problematic is because it has burdened many philosophers

    Since the first Greek philosopher until now, discourses concerning this problem have varied. Some view it as an ontological problem, some as a cognitive one, and others as an epistemological one. Do we suspend our judgment about truth as it is a thing in itself, as a Kantian noumenon, something unknowable that lies behind the phenomenon? These questions always prompt us to return to making truth a subject of contemplation. The significance of philosophical inquiry into truth increases with the diversification of knowledge domains as the philosopher wonders: is objective truth attainable in the human sciences, the sciences that deal with a diverse, changing, and different world and what does it really mean for knowledge to be objective? Does the relativity of knowledge negate its objectivity? Or does the relativity of its objectivity keep us in a perpetual quest for it?

    with providing multiple answers to the question of what truth is. And every question that has multiple answers becomes a problem. What drives people to turn their representations and imaginations, which have no real basis, into truths?

    :In Hippias’s dialogue with Plato, Socrates is quoted as saying

    But, Hippias, what precisely is the reason why those men of old, whose names are a byword

    for wisdom – Pittacus and Bias, and the associates of Thales of Miletus, and those who

    came later, down to Anaxagoras – all of them, or most of them, apparently refrained from

    ?public activity

    :Hippias replies

    Why do you think, Socrates? Weren’t they just lacking in ability, and the competence to

    ?reach an understanding of both the public and private spheres

    Nevertheless, since philosophers live in the midst of the being of humanity, they have no

    choice but confronting life’s problems and meeting life’s needs, the problems of people,

    all people: the poor and the rich, the old, the young and the child, the good and the bad,

    the submissive and the rebellious, the sad and the joyful, the homeless, the refugee and

    the orphan, and the bereaved, the hungry and the cold, the lover and the unemployed,

    the victims of slavery and the oppressed, the longing, the yearning, the haters, the lovers,

    the criminal, the influential, the weak, the strong, the aspiring, the contented, the noble,

    the lowly, the oppressive, the oppressed, the pessimist, the optimist, the indifferent, the

    alienated, the objectifying, the foolish, the absurd, the generous, the stingy, the fighter, the

    opportunist, the ignorant, the scholar, the racist, the tolerant, the pretender, the liar, the

    truthful, the deceitful, the ordinary, the familiar, the astonishing, and the contemplative

    All of these are the true sources of the great questions of philosophy related to being

    With the philosophy of values, life, death and destiny. Yes, philosophy arose from thinking

    about the problems of people’s daily lives, from the never-ending historical determinants

    .of human existence
