LE CORPS SOUFFRANT AU REGARD DE LA PHILOSOPHIE MEDICALE CHEZ Al-RÂZÎ (865 ? - 925 ?) " Essai intégrant la philosophie, la médecine et le spirituel "

Abstract : The thesis raises the issue of the " suffering body " by questioning al-Râzî's (865?-925?) medical philosophy. We start with the following hypothesis: the philosophical and metaphysical dimension of suffering is linked to the "physico-spiritual" dimension. On one hand, the philosophical and metaphysical dimension of suffering arises from the interpretation of the eternal soul in the body, because it tends to lean mistakenly towards material life, and body pleasures of which it becomes prisoner. (The myth of the fall of the soul). On the other hand, the "physical-spiritual" dimension of suffering appears in the imbalance arising from the excess of "physical transgression of the body" and/or physical abuse resulting from "spiritual and moral misconduct". The issue to be examined (and this is the goal of this thesis) is whether medical art with preventive and curative practices, through various paths: the doctor, the hospital... represents - according to al-Râzî - an extension of corrective philosophical behaviour, by restoring the initial balance and erasing the unfairness done to the soul and the body. The initial divine correction granted to the soul has as a goal to free it from material life, by giving it some philosophical knowledge that should save it and purify it.
