Beschreibung

Although strongly influenced by Greek thought, Islamic philosophers also developed an original philosophical culture of their own which flourished from the ninth through the fourteenth century. This volume offers new translations of philosophical writings by Farabi, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Ghazali, Ibn Tufayl, and Ibn Rushd (Averroes). A historical and philosophical introduction sets the writings in context and traces their preoccupations and their achievements.

Inhaltsverzeichnis

Farabi, The Book of Letters; Ibn Sina, On the Soul; Ghazali, The Rescuer from Error; Ibn Tufayl, Hayy bi Yaqzan; Ibn Rushd, The Incoherence of the Incoherence.
