   schema:reviewBody ""Islam and Science provides the necessary background for understanding the contemporary relationship between Islam and modern science. Presenting an authentic discourse on the Islamic understanding of the physical cosmos, Muzaffar Iqbal explores God's relationship to the created world and the historical and cultural forces that have shaped and defined Muslim attitudes towards science. What was Islamic in the Islamic scientific tradition? How was it rooted in the Quranic worldview and whatever happened to it? These are some of the facets of this rich and fascinating account of a tradition that spans eight centuries and covers a vast geographical region." "Written from within, this exploration of some of the most fundamental questions in the Islam and science discourse, explores the process of appropriation and transformation of the Islamic scientific tradition in Europe during the three centuries leading up to the Scientific Revolution."--Jacket." ;
