The research project aims to verify some interpretative hypotheses about ilm al-ḥurūf (the science of letters) and about the philosophical concept of waḥdat al-wujūd (unity of being) from the short treatise of the Andalusian philosopher Ibn ‘Arabī, Kitāb al-Mīm wa’l-Wāw wa’l-Nūn (The book of [letter] mīm, [letter] wāw, and [letter] nūn).
