AN INTRODUCTION TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD
March 14th at 18:30 to March 17th at 13:30
The classical philosophy of the Islamic world is largely an attempt to reconcile the Hellenistic philosophy of Aristotle and Plotinus with the doctrines of the Qur’an. We will trace the evolution of Islamic thought beginning with it’s founders, al Kindi and al Farabi, before exploring Ibn Sina and the Mind/Body problem, Ibn Rushd’s argument that philosophy and theology are not incompatible, then briefly detouring into Sufism and Rumi, and concluding with Ibn Khaldun’s philosophy of History.
