The book of the decisive treatise determining the connection between the law and wisdom ; and, the epistle dedicatory by Averroës( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and Arabic and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Averroes (Ibn Rushd, 1126-1198) emerged from an eminent family in Muslim Spain to become the first and last great Aristotelian of the classical Islamic world his meticulous commentaries influenced Christian thinkers and earned him favorable mention (and a relatively pleasant fate) in Dante's Divina Commedia. The Book of the Decisive Treatise was and remains one his most important works and one of history's best defenses of the legitimate role of reason in a community of faith. The text presents itself as a plea before a tribunal in which the divinely revealed Law of Islam is the sole authority Averroes, critical of the anti-philosophical tone of the Islamic establishment, argues that the Law not only permits but also mandates the study of philosophy and syllogistic or logical reasoning, defending earlier Muslim philosophers and dismissing criticisms of them as more harmful to the Islamic community than the philosophers' own views had been. As he details the three fundamental methods the Law uses to aid people of varied capacities and temperaments, Averroes reveals a carefully formed and remarkably argued conception of the boundaries and uses of faith and reason."--Publisher's description

Alfarabi and the foundation of Islamic political philosophy by Muhsin Mahdi( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work, Muhsin Mahdi distills more than four decades of research to offer an authoritative analysis of the work of Alfarabi, the founder of Islamic political philosophy. Mahdi, whose research brought to light writings of Alfarabi previously known only through medieval bibliographical references, presents this great thinker as his contemporaries and followers would have seen him: as a philosopher who sought to lay the foundations for a new understanding of revealed religion and its relation to the tradition of political philosophy." "Mahdi begins with a survey of Islamic philosophy and a discussion of its historical background. He then gives a general sense of the philosophical debate, or an introduction, to the interrelated spheres of philosophy, political thought, theology, and jurisprudence within Islam and, more particularly, within medieval Islam at the time of Alfarabi. Mahdi turns to Alfarabi's concept of "the virtuous city" in the second part of the book. Here, philosophy is distinguished from science on the one hand and religion on the other. Mahdi concludes with an examination of the work that is key to understanding Alfarabi's political thought, the trilogy known as the Philosophy of Plato and Aristotle." "An philosophical engagement with the writings of and about this great thinker, Alfarabi and the Foundation of Islami Political Philosophy is essential reading for anyone interested in medieval political philosophy."--Jacket
