For the real intellectuals, truth is a search, a journey, a couse, an endeavor. They believe that truth can only be attained through series of painstaking process. The autobiographies of al-Ghaz?l? and Sardar are fine illustrations of this kind of search for thruth. Although al-Ghaz?l? and Sardar are separated by ten centuries, one can find clear parallels in antomy and procedures of their journeys in seeking truth. The present author attempts to analyse these autobiographies and shows why they could be a good example for young intellectuals.
