Über dieses Lehrbuch

This book is an introduction to Islamic Philosophy, beginning with its Medieval inception, right through to its more contemporary incarnations. Using the language and conceptual apparatus of contemporary Anglo-American ‘Analytic’ philosophy, this book represents a novel and creative attempt to rejuvenate Islamic Philosophy for a modern audience. It adopts a ‘rational reconstructive’ approach to the history of philosophy by affording maximum hermeneutical priority to the strongest possible interpretation of a philosopher’s arguments while also paying attention to the historical context in which they worked. The central canonical figures of Medieval Islamic Philosophy – al-Kindi, al-Farabi, Avicenna, al-Ghazali, Averroes – are presented chronologically along with an introduction to the central themes of Islamic theology and the Greek philosophical tradition they inherited. The book then briefly introduces what the author collectively refers to as the ‘Pre-Modern’ figures including Suhrawardi, Mulla Sadra, and Ibn Taymiyyah, and presents all of these thinkers, along with their Medieval predecessors, as forerunners to the more modern incarnation of Islamic Philosophy: Political Islam.

Stimmen zum Buch

“Although such traditional figures as Farabi, Ibn Sina, Ghazzali, Ibn Rushd have been studied extensively, Anthony Booth’s analytical approach brings to light previously understudied aspects of these major figures. To unite the analytical side of several major Islamic philosophers in one volume is invaluable for students and scholars in the field.” (Mehdi Aminrazavi, Professor of Philosophy and Religion, University of Mary Washington, USA)
