About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Distinguished team of contributors
    • Comprehensive coverage from the classical tradition through to later philosophy
    • Accessibly written for students

    Reviews & endorsements

    "In short, The Cambridge Companion to Arabic Philosophy will not only be of interest to scholars and students of Arabic philosophy, but should also be of interest to students and scholars working more generally on later Greek philosophical traditions and on philosophy in the Middle Ages. The work should remain a very good reference for a number of years to come."
    --Roxanne D. Marcotte, The University of Queensland

    "...Out of eighteen contributions to this Companion ten are in general terms historical in nature, four systematic dealing with logic, ethics, philosophical psychology, and metaphysics.... gives an account of interesting collaborative encounter between Islamic and Jewish Philosophy...."
    --Shun'ichi Takayanagi, S.J., Sophia University, Japan, The Modern Schoolman
