(critical ed. Mansur Koçinkağ, Bilal Taşkın)
Published within the framework of the Late Classical Project, this book was written by Shams al-dīn Muhammed b. Mahmūd al-Isfahānī (d. 688/1289) to prepare compendia (mukhtasars) for students in logic, ilm al khilaf, usul al-Fiqh and usul al-Din. Student of al-Abhari, the author of Isagoge, al-Isfahānī benefited from his teacher’s work in logic and put out a finer, improved text. As for the ilm al khilaf section, he followed Amīdī’s method and made use of his students’ works. Section on usul al-Fiqh is like an abridgement of Rāzi’s Mahsūl with some modifications. Although Al-Isfahānī mentions many of Rāzi’s thought, he criticizes his opinions from time to time. In the section on usul al-Din, the author handles the subjects as an Ash`ari kalam scholar and uses the tahqiq method that Rāzi developed.
