Before and after Avicenna : proceedings of the First Conference of the Avicenna Study Group by Avicenna Study Group( )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,517 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.

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

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,310 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
