Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The first edition was published in 1963 by The Free Press of Glencoe as part of the Agora Editions series. Cornell University Press issued a paper edition in 1972. The original editors, Ralph Lerner and Muhsin Mahdi, began work on an expanded second edition in 1986, and passed the project to the current editors during the late 1990s. The 29 selections are arranged in sections on Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, and a major concern is how religious and political ideas might have influenced each other. Among the texts are excerpts from Alfarabi Plato's Laws, Averroes The Decisive Treatise, Maimonides Logic, Thomas Aquinas and Peter of Auvergne Commentary on the Politics, and William of Ockham The Dialogue/. Each piece is introduced. No index is provided. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
