A History of Islamic Philosophy
3rdPublisher: Columbia University PressFormat: Paperback
Fakhry discusses Islamic thought and its effect on the cultural aspects of Muslim life. In the final chapters, he examines the rise of pan-Islamism and the many currents it has generated in the last two centuries, including secularism and fundamentalism, which are still pitted against each other throughout the Muslim world. He 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. Many of the discussed texts have not been translated into English; the book includes Majid Fakhry's masterful translations of these excerpts as well as updates throughout in light of current events and recent Islamic scholarship.
