Ask a question about this product

This work focuses on the ontology of the most important medieval Muslim philosopher, Ibn Sina (980-1037), proferring the theses that: (a) his ontology is incompatible with monotheistic theologies; (b) his cosmogony is not derivable fromn either Aristotelian or Neoplatonic system; and finally (c) the mystical dimension of his system is in accord with monistic"nature mysticism," as classified by R.C. Zaehner. In contrast to the views of contemporary scholars that Ibn Sina's philosophy essentially follows monotheistic or Greek philosophical systems, this work emphasizes his original contribution to ontology and meta-mysticism.
