His Metaphysics (Al-Ilahiyyat) is the climactic, concluding part of his magnum opus, The Healing (Al-Shifa). As in his physics and mathematics, the existent is once again Avicenna's main subject in the metaphysics. But while in the physics he examines the existent inasmuch as it is subject to motion and rest, and in the mathematics inasmuch as it is quantified or relates to measure and quantity, in his metaphysics Avicenna deals with the existent as such - not inasmuch as it is either in motion or quantified, but simply inasmuch as it is an existent, without qualification. In addition, Avicenna here seeks to understand the cause of all things, which leads him, as it lead Aristotle before him, to a discussion of God. He develops an emanative theory of divine causation that represents a remarkable synthesis of Neoplatonic, Aristotelian, and Islamic ideas. Within this emanative scheme we encounter some of the basic ideas of Avicenna's religious and political philosophy, including his discussion of the divine attributes, divine providence, the Hereafter, and the ideal, "virtuous" city with its philosopher-prophet as the recipient and conveyer of the revealed law, a human link between the celestial and the terrestrial worlds."--BOOK JACKET+-+72284398452607ocn001323210book19740.81AvicennaAvicenna's Commentary on the Poetics of Aristotle : a critical study with an annotated translation of the text23114ocn043849565book19520.79AvicennaAvicenna's Psychology : an English translation of Kitāb al-najāt, book II, chapter VI, with historico-philosophical notes and textual improvements on the Cairo edition21423ocn014617340book19590.79AvicennaAvicenna's De anima; being the psychological part of Kitāb al-Shifā'21116ocn000536628book19680.88AvicennaLiber de anima seu sextus de naturalibus, édition critique de la traduction latine médiévale, par S.

Avicenna{u2019}s reasons for beginning with Physics are numerous: it offers up the principles needed to understand such special natural sciences as psychology; it sets up many of the problems that take center stage in his Metaphysics; and it provides concrete examples of many of the abstract analytical tools that he would develop later in Logic. While Avicenna{u2019}s Physics roughly follows the thought of Aristotle{u2019}s Physics, with its emphasis on natural causes, the nature of motion, and the conditions necessary for motion, the work is hardly derivative. It represents arguably the most brilliant mind of late antiquity grappling with and rethinking the entire tradition of natural philosophy inherited from the Greeks as well as the physical thought of Muslim speculative theologians. As such, Physics is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding Avicenna{u2019}s complete philosophical system, the history of science, or the history of ideas+-+32927079351136ocn004128333book19770.84AvicennaLiber De Philosophia prima, sive, Scientia divina I-IVSources11237ocn021500710book18700.95Avicennaal-Ishārāt wa-al-tanbīhāt19775ocn045732626file19920.47Goodman, Lenn EvanAvicennaThe philosophers in the West, none, perhaps, is better known by name and less familiar in actual content of his ideas than the medieval Muslim philosopher, physician, minister and naturalist Abu Ali Ibn Sina, known since the days of the scholastics as Avicenna.

Medieval Islamic, Jewish, Christian philosophers, and European philosophers in the sixteenth century considered it a possible key to deciphering the nature of man and the universe. In this book, Herbert Davidson examines the treatment of intellect in Alfarabi (d. 950), Avicenna (980-1037) and Averroes (1126-1198), with particular attention to the way in which they addressed the tangle of issues that grew up around the active intellect+-+387925046595611ocn000352677book19640.70Nasr, Seyyed HosseinAn introduction to Islamic cosmological doctrines; conceptions of nature and methods used for its study by the Ikhwān al-Ṣafāʼ, al-Bīrūnī, and Ibn SīnāThis is the only book to deal with classical Islamic cosmology as it was formulated by the Ikhwan al-S'afa al Biruni and Ibn Sina during the tenth and eleventh centuries. These figures influenced all the later centuries of Islamic history and in fact created the cosmological framework within which all later scientific activity in the Islamic world was carried out--the enduring image of the cosmos within which Muslims have lived during the past millennium. Nasr writes from within the Islamic tradition and demonstrates how, based on the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet, the figures treated in this work integrated elements drawn from various ancient schools of philosophy and the sciences. This book is unique in its treatment of classical Islamic cosmology as seen from within the Islamic world-view and provides a key for understanding of traditional Islamic thought. -- Back cover+-+81606964259384ocn191944920file20040.50Avicenna Study GroupInterpreting Avicenna science and philosophy in medieval Islam : proceedings of the Second Conference of the Avicenna Study GroupHistoryConference proceedingsThis volume provides twelve essays on various aspects of Avicenna's philosophical and scientific contributions, approaching these topics from philological, historical and philosohical methodologies. The work is conceptually divided into four sections: (1) methodology, (2) natural philosophy and the exact sciences, (3) theology and metaphysics and (4) Avicenna's heritage. The First section provides considerations for distinguishing genuine from pseudo Avicennan works. The second section deals with topics encountered in Avicenna's physics, psychology, mathematics and medical theories. The third section treats issues ranging from the theological sources for Avicenna's proof for the existence of God and God's knowledge of particulars to the place of puzzles in Avicenna's Metaphysics as well as the relation of form and matter in Avicenna's thought. The final section considers Avicenna's historical influence on later thinkers such as al-Ghazali as well as his subsequent influence in Persia. -- Publisher description+-+05148695549243ocn646789716com20070.50Belo, Catarina C. M. de MChance and determinism in Avicenna and AverroesExamines the question as to whether medieval Muslim philosophers Avicenna (Arabic Ibn Sina 980-1037) and Averroes (Arabic Ibn Rushd 1126-1198) are determinists. With a focus on physics and metaphysics, this book also studies their views on chance events in nature, as well as matter, in particular prime matter, and divine providence+-+72300695549234ocn191952745com20030.50Avicenna study groupBefore and after Avicenna proceedings of the First Conference of the Avicenna Study GroupConference proceedings+-+73247695548874ocn012750782book19860.39Burrell, David BKnowing the unknowable God : Ibn-Sina, Maimonides, Aquinas+-+61776531758253ocn044964053file19920.56Heath, PeterAllegory and philosophy in Avicenna (Ibn Sînâ) with a translation of the Book of the Prophet Muhammad's ascent to heavenIslamic allegory is the product of a cohesive literary tradition to which few contributed as significantly as Ibn Sina (Avicenna), the eleventh-century Muslim philosopher. Peter Heath here offers a detailed examination of Avicenna's contribution, paying special attention to Avicenna's psychology and poetics and to the ways in which they influenced strains of theological, mystical, and literary thought in subsequent Islamic - and Western - intellectual and religious history. Heath begins by showing how Avicenna's writings fit into the context and general history of Islamic allegory and explores the interaction among allegory, allegoresis, and philosophy in Avicenna's thought. He then provides a brief introduction to Avicenna as an historical figure. From there, he examines the ways in which Avicenna's cosmological, psychological, and epistemological theories find parallel, if diverse, expression in the disparate formats of philosophical and allegorical narration. Included in this book is an illustration of Avicenna's allegorical practice. This takes the form of a translation of the Mi'raj Nama (The Book of the Prophet Muhammad's Ascent to Heaven), a short treatise in Persian generally attributed to Avicenna. The text concludes with an investigation of the literary dimension Avicenna's allegorical theory and practice by examining his use of description metaphor. Allegory and Philosophy in Avicenna is an original and important work that breaks new ground by applying the techniques of modern literary criticism to the study of Medieval Islamic philosophy.

This new and original text provides a timely re-examination of Islamic thought, presenting a stark contrast to the more usual conservative view. The explanation of the relationship between God and humans, as portrayed in Islam, is often influenced by the images of God and of human beings which theologians, philosophers and mystics have in mind. The early period of Islam reveals a diversity of interpretations of this relationship. Elkaisy-Friemuth discusses the view of three scholars from the tenth and eleventh century: Abd al-Jabbar, Ibn Sina and Al-Ghazali, which introduce three different approaches of looking at the relationship between God and Humans. God and Humans in Islamic Thought attempts to shed light on an important side of medieval rational thought in demonstrating its significance in forming the basis of an understanding of the nature of God, the nature of human beings and the construction of different bridges between them+-+02801485753243327ocn319064672book20090.73McGinnis, JonAvicennaHistoryDespite Avicenna's important place in the history of ideas, there has been no single volume that both recognizes the complete range of his intellectual activity and provides a rigorous analysis of his philosophical thinking. This book fills that need.

Abd al-Kar-im b. Ahmad al-Shahrast-an-i's Kitab al-Musara'aMuhammad b. Abd al-Karim al-Shahrastani was one of the most learned and enigmatic scholars of medieval Islam. In his work, 'Kitab al-Musara'a' ('Struggling with the Philosopher'), which is published here in English translation (together with its original Arabic text) for the first time, al-Shahrastani gives a detailed critique of the metaphysics of the great Persian philosopher Avicenna. The greater part of his 'intellectual wrestling match' ('musara'a') is devoted to refuting Avicenna's interpretation of the 'Necessary Being' which, he argues, compromises the absolute transcendence of God.
