Description :

Al-Farabi's Philosophical Lexicon in 2 Volume set. This unique edition consists of two Volumes; Volume One quotes the Arabic text of al-Farabiís philosophical definitions and those of parallel authors, and Volume Two contains an English translation, an interpretative essay on al-Farabi and detailed indices.


The influential 10th-century Arabic philosopher al- Farabi wrote a lexicon of philosophy, providing all the terms and concepts of classical and Arabic philosophy with definitions, quoting their use and sources. In this volume, al-Farabi's 500-page Arabic lexicon is presented with full annotation, followed by an English translation. Ilai Alon has supplemented the text and translation with an extensive bibliography, an introduction, and a lengthy (135-page) essay on the history of lexicography and the life, impact, views, and writings of al-Farabi.



Abu Nasr Muhammad al-Farabi (d. 950 C.E.), was perhaps the most original and influential of all Muslim philosophers of the Middle Ages. His intellectual activity spanned over areas as different as music, medicine, political theory, linguistics, logic, metaphysics, religion and philosophy at large.


There is little reliable information about al-Farabi's life. He was born in a place called Farayb and then moved to Baghdad in his youth. He was also known to have travelled to Damsacus, Syria, Turkey and Egypt. He is said to have died in Damascus 950CE/339AH.


Great thinkers within the Islamic world from Ibn Bajjah to Ibn Rushd, as well as many outside it, such as Maimonides, St Thomas Aquinas and Spinoza refer to his works with great deference. Al-Farabis main contribution is the co-systematisation of various spiritual disciplines in Islamic non-traditional culture, using them in a sophisticated manner for promoting a universalistic world-view.
