Book Description

16 Nov 2007

1001 İCAT D&;Uuml&;#59;NYAMIZDA İSLAM MİRASI... Kahve çekirdeklerinin, torpidoların, ameliyat skalpellerin, kemerlerin ve rasathanelerin, hepsinin ortak yönü nedir? Leonarda da Vinci uçma fikirleri orjinal miydi? Kim haplar için kapsülü akıl etti ve Fibonacci matematik hünerlerini nereden öğrendi ? Bu soruların cevapları ve daha fazlası bu kitapta bulanabilir.

600 yılından 1600 yılana kadar olan uygarlığın altın çağı ortaya çıkaçak: Ortaçağ Müslümanları tıp ve mekanik, kartografi ve kimya, eğitim ve mühendislik, mimarlık ve astronomi gibi çeşitli alanların öncülüğünü yapmışlardı. Hiç bir alan katı bilimsel deneyle desteklenen sorgunun detaylı tahkikatını ıskalayacak derecede belirsiz değildi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Brilliant and Absorbing!! 19 Jan 2008
A brilliantly compiled and gripping encyclopedia of knowledge, which will have the reader wanting to know more. This book is essential reading for students and for those seeking to understand Islam and the Muslim peoples. A must read in my humble opinion for anyone who is interested in history, science and culture. I just could not put it down! Informative would be an understatement.. It's got quality written all over it. Made from quality glossy paper, it's definitely worth the price I paid for it, and I intend to buy more copies for my family and friends. It's beautifully illustrated, full of wonderful photographs, maps and diagrams. It's main theme and core is highlighting Muslim Scientists, Thinkers and Artists, and their contributions in our world. Its simple layout makes it a most enjoyable read. What really intrigued me was that `The Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation (FSTC)' has authenticated, and published this book.

It contains an ocean of facts, especially things we take for granted in our daily lives:

Who would have thought that it was through early Muslim advancements in science and culture that went on to lay the foundations/cornerstones of the European Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and modern Western society.

Who would have thought it was in translation from Arabic, not the original Greek, that knowledge of Greek philosophy became prominent in Christian thought.

Who would have thought that Western mathematics are based on Arabic numerals and calculations. Never!! I hear you all shout? Sadly I thought the same.. Truth can be stranger than fiction, and very hard to stomach.

Who would have thought that `Coffee' is actually a Muslim discovery, and the word is derived from the Arabic word Al-Qawah (Café).

This book is not the first one I have read about the contribution of Muslims to civilisation. It is definitely one that attempts to be a complete book, but sadly it just isn't! There are too many photographs and illustrations, which for me, take up too much space and don't tell you anything more about Muslim scientists. There is nothing about Muslim scientists' approach and no originality as researchers seem to have been happy enough to just regurgitate books and articles. Having said that however, it does have a space on my bookshelf as it is a very good introduction to the subject matter for any visitors to my bookshelf who need a first book, you see if the title was "introduction to the Muslim contribution..." then it would get 4 stars. For me though I wanted a more in depth book. I give it three stars as: it is only an introduction, it does not go deeply into the Muslim scientists themselves and there are too many pictures and photographs. But if you are after just a starting point, this is worth buying, although it looks expensive, it is a big volume and justifies the price tag. Even I have to admit that for teachers and the like this book will go down very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Worth to keep in your home library!!! 14 Mar 2012
This book is amazing. It is clear that big effort was put in to develop such a book. It is an encyclopedia to what you want to know about the dark ages (which was the golden ages in the other part of the world). It is an encyclopedia to what you want to know about the European renaissance and which civilizations it was built on, like all other previous civilizations. It has amazing facts about where did words like Algebra, Arabic numbers and camera came from. I surely recommend this book to everybody and all ages starting from 7-9 years. It is full of historical documentaries and amazing pictures. It is reference to what you what to know about hidden facts regarding muslims.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Intriguing 27 Oct 2010
A very well compiled book, which opened up my eyes to the amazing development of certain products which we use today. It is also, nice to see the contributions made by Muslim inventers and scholars highlighted as their positive contribution to the progression of humans. I have had the priviledge to attend the exhibition which is related to this book; and altogether brings the book to live. Highly recommended, especially for those intrigued with science and the history behind it.
