The Essential Ideas of Islamic Philosophy:
A Brief Survey
This book presents Islamic philosophy from within the Islamic tradition and on its own terms. The ideas of the Muslim philosophers based on the primary texts are analyzed, and then the arguments are structured, rather than just tracking their ideas in a traditional historical method. This presentation is necessary and helpful not only to the understanding of Islamic civilization, but also to the very understanding of the roots of modern western philosophy.
“This book fills a real need, for there has been no compact and readily accessible account of the ideas of these important thinkers that gives convenient access to their principal ideas and arguments – often in their own words ...” Professor Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh
