Book Description

12 Nov 2004
The first comprehensive survey of Islamic philosophy from the seventh century to the present, this classic discusses Islamic thought and its effect on the cultural aspects of Muslim life. Fakhry shows how Islamic philosophy has followed from the earliest times a distinctive line of development, which gives it the unity and continuity that are the marks of the great intellectual movements of history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple 26 Nov 2008
By gnostic
Format:Paperback
I found this a good, simple book on Islamic Philosophy. Better than other books that I read on the subject. The author has a lucid style and makes things simple and I must agree with the above point that details do get a bit heavy but its truly worth the purchase or at least a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars I agree with "Customer" 11 Jan 2008
By M. Qualey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although I do think that Fakhry gets a little out of hand with his "always" and "never" and "the last Islamic philosopher to X" statements, it is generally a sober and well conceived introduction to Islamic philosophy, if not very spicily written.
