Ibn Rushd (1126-1198), better known as Averroes, is said to be the greatest among the Muslim commentators on Aristotle and is especially known for his influence on medieval Christendom and on medieval and Renaissance science and philosophy.

Originally published in 1983. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-pr
Alfarabi, the political writings : selected aphorisms and other texts by Farabi ( Book )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Alfarabi was among the first to explore the tensions between the philosophy of classical Greece and that of Islam, as well as of religion generally. His writings, extraordinary in their breadth and deep learning, have had a profound impact on Islamic and Jewish philosophy. This volume presents four of Alfarabi's most important texts, making his political thought available to classicists, medievalists, and scholars of religion and Byzantine and Middle Eastern studies." "Butterworth situates each essay in its historical, literary, and philosophical context. His notes help the reader follow Alfarabi's text and identify persons, places, and events. English-Arabic and Arabic-English glossaries of terms further assist the reader."--Jacket
The book of the decisive treatise determining the connection between the law and wisdom ; and, The epistle dedicatory by Averroës ( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and Arabic and held by 7 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

These hours of solitude and meditation are the only time of the day when I am completely myself'Reveries of the Solitary Walker is Rousseau's last great work, the product of his final years of exile from the society that condemned his political and religious views. Returning to Paris the philosopher determines to keep a faithful record of the thoughts and ideas that come to him on his perambulations. Part reminiscence, part reflection, enlivened by anecdote and encounters, the Reveries form a kind of sequel to his Confessions, but they are more introspectiveand less defensive: Rousseau finds h
