Islamic Philosophy - History and Problems, (ed. M. Cüneyt Kaya)

Ed. M. Cüneyt KAYA


Philosophy, which was moribund around the beginning of the 7th century AD throughout the regions of ancient civilizations, was revived two centuries later in Baghdad by the translation movement that conveyed the philosophical accumulation of the Hellenistic world into Arabic. Works that were translated were reexamined by Muslims in line with the multitude of intellectual needs and interests of the nascent multi-racial, multi-cultural, and multi-creedal Islamic civilization. This event led to the birth of Islamic philosophy becoming one of the philosophical traditions in world history.
This book, which aims at gathering the noteworthy academic accumulation in Turkey concerning Islamic philosophy, examines the classical period (7th-12th centuries AD) of Islamic philosophy from its historical and problematical aspects. The historical section of the book deals with eleven prominent philosophers from the classical period and four important thinkers who shaped the post-classical period. The thematic section of the book deals in detail with the main fields of philosophy (logic, psychology/epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and politics), the literature that leaked into Islamic philosophy and the consequential problems, and finally the approaches of Islamic philosophy thinkers toward these disciplines.
