This Avicenna-bibliography, the result of twenty years of research, seeks to continue the work begun in this domain by G.C. Anawati. New times produce new possibilities, and indeed, with the advent of the computer and inter-library networking, a renewed approach becomes not only a possibility but also a necessity. In this bibliography, more extensive and systematic attention is paid to non-Western publications, especially Arabian, persian, Turkish and Russian. Of special interest is the inclusion of a number of Indian publications. The publications are ordered according to a consistent thematic division, with cross-references being provided where necessary. Separate chapters are dedicated to the scientific and medical contributions, while the philosophical works are treated in ten chapters. In all instances an introduction is provided which attempts to outline both the mediaeval context of Avicenna's thought and the actual form of his thinking. Special attention is paid to biographical and bibliographical studies, as well as to the 'Millenium' of publications that resulted from the Unesco sponsored 1980 memorial oth the millenium of Avicenna's birth. Finally, and in fact most importantly, an overvieuw is given of the numerous editions or translations of Avicenna's work, which are identified according to the numbering of the classic bibliographies of G.C. Anawati and M. Mahdavi. Almost all publications are annotated with a summary presentation of their most original points and a short critical evaluation. The text thus serves as a first orientation for the reader into the richness of Avicenna's legacy. In sum, this bibliography aims at providing a clear, concise and comprehensive presentation of the material, and is thus an indispensible work-instrument for all future Avicenna research.
