PHIL 084 PZ - Islamic Philosophy


From the ninth century CE to the present day, a set of philosophical topics has been systematically discussed and developed by philosophers in the Islamic world. In this course, we will examine a number of topics which include the nature of the universe (matter, space, and time), being and necessity, the existence and attributes of God, the nature and individuation of the soul, knowledge and perception, and free will. Through selective readings of philosophical texts, we will introduce the main figures, including Kindi, Farabi, Ibn Sina, Ghazali, Ibn Bajjah, Ibn Tufayl, Ibn Rushd, Tusi and Mulla Sadra.
