About the Authors
  • Although Islamic philosophy represents one of the most important philosophical traditions in the world, it has only relatively recently begun to receive attention in the non-Islamic world. This is a new edition of a successful introductory book, expanded and updated to take account of recent scholarship. It focuses on what is regarded as Islamic philosophy's golden age, and will appeal to students and to any general reader interested in this philosophical tradition.

    • A revised and expanded edition of Leaman's classic introductory work
    • Examines the distinctive features of Classical Islamic philosophy and offers detailed accounts of major individual thinkers
    • Will be of interest to a wide range of readers in philosophy, religious studies and Islamic studies
