Format: Paperback
A little known book on ibn Hazm but probably the best you can find.

Granted Anwar Chejnes books are probably the best on ibn Hazm but due to the fact they are almost impossible to find (the only Chejne book I have is his Morisocs book published almost a decade ago) This one by Abu Laylah is without dobut the best biography and translation of ibn Hazm that is around today.

The book begins with a biography of ibn Hazm, his birthdate, place, family background, the debates over his own ethnic background and the society in which ibn Hazm grew up in. The biography covers his teachers and students and the many trials that he went through.

The second chapter then covers ibn Hazms thoughts on morality and theology and is extensive and detailed. The final part of the book is a translation of one of ibn Hazms works on morality and theology.

The book is well documented throughout and includes an extensive biography for the reader should they wish to further their research.

An exellent book I strongly recomend. To anyone who has read ibn Hazms classic "Wings of a dove" They should get this book, if anything for the biography alone!

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this text it really made me think a lot about the life I was living at the time and what my direction should be.

The book contains a lenghty introduction which can be skipped and read later - which I did. Most of the text is written in short bullet points which are easily understood.

I recommend this text to anyone who wants to think. Buy it!!
