  • Objectives
  • Fills a gap in the field by presenting research on analytic Islamic philosophy [Falsafa] in a newly accessible textbook format
  • Makes significant connections between historic Islamic texts and philosophy and contemporary debates within analytic philosophy
  • Takes a pedagogically oriented approach to the topic, including chapter objectives, summaries, and essay questions to encourage further reading around the subject
  • “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)
