    An introduction to medieval Islamic philosophy / Oliver Leaman. Author/Creator: Leaman, Oliver, Publication: Cambridge [Cambridgeshire] ; New York: Cambridge University Press, Rather than offering a complete history of the subject, the author aims to stimulate the reader to pursue the themes he outlines in the book: the ideas that were consistently the object of philosophical speculation among Medieval Muslim thinkers whose philosophy was rooted in Brand: Edinburgh University Press.

Its is essentially, the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language but is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument.   5 Islamic Philosophers Every Muslim Must Read. The purpose of this introduction is to generate enough curiosity so that people can start reading them. but I am partial to his work in political philosophy. His most important book on political philosophy was ārā ahl al-madīna al-fāḍila (The Views of the People of The Virtuous City).

      Book Overview In this classic work, Frederick C.

It discusses a number of themes which were controversial within the philosophical community of that period: the creation of the world out of nothing, immortality, resurrection, the nature of ethics, and the relationship between natural and religious : Oliver Leaman.

Excellent introduction to Medieval Philosophy by Copleston. His 9-Volume History of Philosophy series is also highly recommended. Copleston gives a good solid introduction to major figures of the Medieval Period: Augustine (included due to his influence in Medieval Philosophy), Anslem, Bonaventure, Aquinas, Avicenna, Averroes, Ockham and others/5.

First, medieval philosophy came from a period when philosophy was under attack: the proponents of religious faith felt that the claims of the philosophers concerning the superiority of reason were false and this led to medieval philosophers such as Aquinas and Averroes having to defend the purpose and the existence of philosophy from first principles.

The terminology of Islamic philosophy did not emerge as a branch of knowledge that is taught in the curriculum of Islamic studies until it was introduced by Shaykh Mustafa Abd al-Raziq – the Shaykh of al-Azhar – as a reaction to western attacks on Islam based on the idea that Islam has no philosophy.
