Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Representing one of the great traditions of Western philosophy, philosophy written in Arabic and in the Islamic world was inspired by Greek philosophical works and the indigenous ideas of Islamic theology. This collection of essays, by some of the leading scholars in Arabic philosophy, provides an introduction to the field by way of chapters devoted to individual thinkers (such as al-Farabi, Avicenna and Averroes) or groups, especially during the 'classical' period from the ninth to the twelfth centuries.

Synopsis:

This volume offers a history of and thematic guide to philosophy in the Arabic language. An international team of scholars explores the major schools, figures and preoccupations of Arabic thought from its flowering in the 'classical' period (the 9th to the 12th centuries) to the present day.

Synopsis:

This collection of essays by leading scholars provides an introduction to Arabic philosophy by way of chapters devoted to individual thinkers (such as al-Farabi, Avicenna and Averroes) or groups, especially during the 'classical' period from the ninth to the twelfth centuries. It also includes chapters on areas of philosophical inquiry across the tradition, such as ethics and metaphysics. Finally, it includes chapters on later Islamic thought, and on the connections between Arabic philosophy and Greek, Jewish, and Latin philosophy.
