An Introduction to Classical Islamic Philosophy

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, 2002 - Philosophy - 253 pages
Although Islamic philosophy represents one of the most important philosophical traditions in the world, it has only relatively recently begun to receive the attention it deserves in the non-Islamic world. This is a new edition of a successful introductory book, expanded and updated to take account of recent scholarship. It focuses on what is regarded as Islamic philosophy's golden age, and will appeal to students and to any general reader interested in this philosophical tradition.
