Review: Averroes

User Review  - Colin - Goodreads

Another short but excellent introduction to Averroes. It is formatted in a way so that it looks at the different roles Ibn Rushd(Averroes) played in society. He was a jurist of fiqh, a doctor, a commentator on greek philosophy and a speculative theologian. Read full review
