Críticas:

"This is a definitive book on the Sufi 'way of blame' that addresses the cultural life of Sufism in its entirety. Yannis Toussulis may be the first to explore the relation between this controversial movement and the larger tradition of Sufism, as well as between Sufism and Islam generally, throughout history to the present" --"Branches of Light
"

"This is an important book. Toussulis presents a new picture of the way of blame. He basically sees it as that aspect of Sufism where one is prepared to be critical of oneself. The best work on Sufism I have read in a very long time. Toussulis aims to, and succeeds, in presenting an attractive and stimulating picture of the modern strand of Sufism to which he belongs. "Sufism and the Way of Blame" is both a scholarly study and an accessible account of one aspect of modern Sufism." --"The Gurdjieff Books" Blog

" in-depth scholarly research highly insightful and critical priceless information a must-read."
--Robert Frager, co-author of "Essential Sufism
""

." . . surpasses any book on the topic currently in print. This is an authoritative volume, and one badly needed at this time." --Stanley Krippner, PhD; Recipient of the Ashley Montagu Award, Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University; co-author of "Personal Mythology"

." . . engaging and inclusive . . . careful and precise . . . worth reading, keeping, and returning to time and again." --Shaykh Ahmed Abdur Rashid of the Mujaddidi-Naqshbandiyya, Qadriyya, Chistiyya, Shadiliyya

." . . in-depth scholarly research. . . highly insightful and critical. . . priceless information. . . a must-read." --Robert Frager, co-author of "Essential Sufism"

"At last! - a trustworthy book on the blame-worthy ones. -Peter Lamborn Wilson (a.k.a. Hakim Bey), author of "Scandal: Essays in Islamic Heresy," co-author of "The Drunken Universe: An anthology of Persian Sufi Poetry" and "Green Hermeticism: Alchemy and Ecology"

""Sufism and the Way of Blame" cuts through many of the myths that have attached themselves to popular presentations of Sufi ideas. It provides not only a readable summary of the multifaceted history of Islam and Sufism, but also a previously inaccessible understanding of the working model of spiritual growth associated with the "Way of Blame." If you've ever been attracted to the teachings associated with Sufism, G.I. Gurdjieff, J.G. Bennett, or Idris Shah, you will benefit from reading this book" --Jay Kinney, author and publisher and editor-in-chief of "Gnosis: a Journal of the Western Inner Traditions"

"Dr.Yannis Toussulis has written the definitive study of Malamati Sufism . . --Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi, co-author of "A Heart Afire: Stories" and Teachings of "Early Hasidic Masters"
." . . a critical assessment of the history, context, and spiritual significance of one of the most important yet hidden traditions within Islamic mysticism . . (the "way of blame") cuts to the bone, and points to what a mature spirituality could be." --Kabir Helminski, author of "Living Presence" and "The Knowing Heart: A Sufi Path of Transformation"; translator of Rumi, and Sufi teacher

Reseña del editor:

Gold Winner of the 2012 Benjamin Franklin Award and the 2012 Independent Publisher Book Award!

This is a definitive book on the Sufi "way of blame" that addresses the cultural life of Sufism in its entirety. Originating in ninth-century Persia, the "way of blame" (Arab. malamatiyya) is a little-known tradition within larger Sufism that focused on the psychology of egoism and engaged in self-critique. Later, the term referred to those Sufis who shunned Islamic literalism and formalism, thus being worthy of "blame." Yannis Toussulis may be the first to explore the relation between this controversial movement and the larger tradition of Sufism, as well as between Sufism and Islam generally, throughout history to the present. Both a Western professor of the psychology of religion and a Sufi practitioner, Toussulis has studied malamatiyya for over a decade. Explaining Sufism as a lifelong practice to become a "perfect mirror in which God contemplates Himself," he draws on and critiques contemporary interpretations by G. I Gurdjieff, J. G. Bennett, and Idries Shah, as well as on Frithjof Schuon, Martin Lings, and Seyyed Hossein Nasr. He also contributes personal research conducted with one of the last living representatives of the way of blame in Turkey today, Mehmet Selim Ozic.
