Classical Arabic Philosophy
When Islam spread throughout a region spanning from Spain to India, Islamic culture absorbed and transformed a wide array of philosophical traditions, including Ancient Greek, Persian, and Indian thought. This course covers philosophers writing in Arabic from the 9th to the 12th c. CE, such as Al-Farabi, Avicenna, Al-Ghazali, Ibn Tufayl, Maimonides, and AverroÃ«s. Topics may include logic and semantics, conceptions of the soul, causation and creation, essence and existence, or political and social thought.
