عنوان مقاله [English]
The main discourse and discussion of the current research study develops from a comparison between Tahdib-al-Akhlaq (The Refinement of Character) originally written in Arabic by Abu Ali Miskawayh (932-1030 AD) and Akhlaq-i-Naseri (Nasirean Ethics) written in Persian by Nasir al-Din Tusi (1201-1274 AD). In the introduction to his philosophical and ethical book, Nasir al-Din name Miskawayh’s Tahdib-al-Akhlaq as the main source to write a dictinct season on the significance of moral excellence and refinement of character. Apart from drastic changes regarding form and style, he has seriously prevented to render an austere and static translation from the text. Instead, Tusi has decorated his work with moral and philosophical notions supplied with scholarly annotations. All these changes along with accumulation of two other articles titled “Tadbir-i-Manazel” (Economics) and “Siasat-i-Modon” (Politics) make us to know that Tusi has managed his mind to present a more perfect and pulished version of the original work. On this basis, the research aims to highlight those unique features of stylistics which distinguished the work itself and brought reputation for this prominent Muslim scholar.
