The Polished Mirror locates Islamic virtue ethics outside of the genre of writing to which it has usually been assigned, namely philosophical treatises on the “character traits.” Instead, it considers Islamic virtue ethics as a pursuit of the perfection of character with a much broader reach, most pronounced as an interdisciplinary discourse between Islamic philosophy and Sufism. Zargar makes the case that the perfection of character traits has been of shared interest not only in Islamic scholarly literature, but in its wisdom literature and stories as well.
