Description :

Avicenna (ibn Sina) a great Persian thinker of his time, presents his views on theology and his attempt to reconcile philosophical theory with Islamic dogma.


It is being increasingly realised that the philosophers and scientists of medieval Islam are highly significant not only as forming the bridge between Ancient Greece and Modern Europe, but also in their own right as constituting a distinctive Islamic school of metaphysics and epistemology.


In this volume, the translator has translated a selection of Avicenna's theological writings and shown his orginality and importance in this field of thought.
