Abstract

Chapter  1, “The Current Project,” aims at providing an introduction, background, and context for the tasks undertaken in this volume. It introduces the study’s motives, objectives, and procedures (Sect. 1.1), with special attention paid to the terms “dialectical” and “forge” and what they are meant to convey, starting points in past research, “subject-text” and “lens-texts,” analytical method, thesis questions, and chosen modes of presenting the material. It provides a summary of the volume’s arguments, theories, and conclusions (Sect. 1.2); and it introduces and explains a number of important terms which occur throughout the volume (Sect. 1.3), including “proto-system,” endoxon, istidlāl, iʿtirāḍ, and “argumentation episteme.”

Keywords
