The making of the Avicennan tradition : the transmission, contents, and structure of Ibn Sīnā's al-Mubāḥat̲āt (The discussions) by David C Reisman( )

29 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Presenting a detailed analysis of the manuscripts, contents, structure and historical transmission of "The Discussions, this volume is a collection of correspondence written by eleventh-century philosoher Avicenna, his students and colleagues. The first chapter contains a study of the extant manuscripts complete with palaeographical and codicological details. The second chapter traces the transmission of the texts that now constitute "The Discussions and offers convincing arguments for their posthumous collection. The third chapter presents biographical studies of Avicenna's students Bahmanyar and Ibn Zayla, and his colleague Ab? l-Q?sim al-Kirm?n?, in order to develop the historical and intellectual contexts of these philosophical discussions. The fourth chapter develops theories for the dating and original sequence of the individual letters on the basis of textual evidence
Before and after Avicenna : proceedings of the First Conference of the Avicenna Study Group by Avicenna Study Group( )

20 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 13 essays, by scholars of philosophy and the Near East, reflect current trends and concerns in the study of Avicenna (980-1037), perhaps the most influential philosopher in pre- modern Europe and the Near East. Among the topics are some texts of Aristotle's Metaphysics in the Ilahiyat of Avicenna's Kitab as-Sifa, Plotinus and Avicenna as a contrast between intellect versus active intellect, historical sources for his life and times, medical theory and scientific method during his era, Fahr ad-Din ar Razi's critique of his argument for the unity of god, and the Twelver-Shia reception of Avicenna in the Mongol Period.

Islamic philosophy, science, culture, and religion : studies in honor of Dimitri Gutas by David C Reisman( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Arabic and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islamic intellectual thought is at the center of this collection of articles honoring Dimitri Gutas by friends, colleagues, and former students. The essays cover three main areas: the classical heritage and Islamic culture; classical Arabic science and philosophy; and Muslim traditional sciences. They show the interconnectedness between the Islamic intellectual tradition and its historical predecessors of Greek and Persian provenance, ranging from poetry to science and philosophy. Yet, at the same time, the authors demonstrate the independence of Muslim scholarship and the rich inner-Muslim debates that brought forth a flourishing scholastic culture in the sciences, philosophy, literature, and religious sciences. This collection also reflects the breadth of contemporary research on the intellectual traditions of Islamic civilization. -- Back cover
The economics of Alfred Marshall by David C Reisman( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986, The Economics of Alfred Marshall is concerned with the theories of demand, supply, market structure and income distribution which the celebrated author of the Principles of Economics developed while standing on the shoulders of giants. It is thus concerned with hidden assumptions, institutional constraints, tentative conclusions and blurred distinctions; for these are an integral part of the contribution of an economist who warned against spurious over-simplification of that which is inherently complex. The economics of Alfred Marshall appear

Interpreting Avicenna : science and philosophy in medieval Islam : proceedings of the Second Conference of the Avicenna Study Group by Avicenna Study Group( )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides twelve essays on various aspects of Avicenna's philosophical and scientific contributions, approaching these topics from philological, historical and philosohical methodologies. The work is conceptually divided into four sections: (1) methodology, (2) natural philosophy and the exact sciences, (3) theology and metaphysics and (4) Avicenna's heritage. The First section provides considerations for distinguishing genuine from pseudo Avicennan works. The second section deals with topics encountered in Avicenna's physics, psychology, mathematics and medical theories. The third section treats issues ranging from the theological sources for Avicenna's proof for the existence of God and God's knowledge of particulars to the place of puzzles in Avicenna's Metaphysics as well as the relation of form and matter in Avicenna's thought. The final section considers Avicenna's historical influence on later thinkers such as al-Ghazali as well as his subsequent influence in Persia. -- Publisher description
Thomas Robert Malthus by David C Reisman( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834) was a leading figure in the British classical school of economics, best-known for extending the insights of Adam Smith at a time of revolutionary improvements in agriculture and industry. This book explores the way in which he accounted for the tendency to overpopulation, the exhaustion of arable land and the deficiency of effective demand. Malthus relied on historical and empirical evidence in the spirit of Bacon and Hume, but also backed up his data with a priori hypotheses that link him to his contemporary, David Ricardo. Malthus was strongly in favour of free trade, the minimal State, the gold standard and the abolition of poverty relief. Always a pragmatist, however, he was just as much in favour of public education, contra-cyclical public works and a safety net of tariffs and bounties to encourage national self-sufficiency with regard to food. He was both an economist and a clergyman and saw the two roles as interconnected. Malthus believed that a benevolent Deity had created vice and misery in order to shake human beings out of their natural indolence that would otherwise have condemned them to still greater distress. This title provides a clear and comprehensive examination of Malthus's economic and social thought. It will be of interest to students and scholars alike

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986, 1987 and 1990, this three volume reissue covers the life and times of leading economic theorist, Alfred Marshall - one of the founders of neoclassical economics. David Reisman's incisive and comprehensive study divides Marshall's work into three key areas: economics, progress and politics, and moral principles. The author deals with everything from Marshall's magnum opus Principles of Economics through to his contribution to the progressive evolution in Victorian politics; and finally the way in which his background
Global political economy : beyond the nation state by David A Reisman( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics is business, and politics is power. In this insightful book, David Reisman explores the interaction between authority and exchange in a global village where individual nation states - once the pinnacle of political organisation - increasingly depend on each other for their material well-being. Taking a transnational and impartial perspective, the author builds a comprehensive and intricate narrative. He dissects the emergence of the contemporary global economy and explains its impact on the sovereignty and strength of nations. Reisman explores the ways in which liberals, socialists and nationalists can reach a viable consensus in a new social order where the national interest must be the global interest as well. Offering authoritative, integrated and critical guidance to a topic that is of ever greater importance, this book is crucial reading for students of global political economy and international politics. --
