The Cambridge Companion to Arabic Philosophy
edited by Peter Adamson and Richard C. Taylor
Representing one of the great traditions of Western philosophy, philosophy written in Arabic and in the Islamic world was inspired by Greek philosophical works and the indigenous ideas of Islamic theology. This collection of essays, by some of the leading scholars in Arabic philosophy, provides an introduction to the field by way of chapters devoted to individual thinkers (such as al-Farabi, Avicenna and Averroes) or groups, especially during the ‘classical’ period from the ninth to the twelfth centuries.
