History of Islamic Philosophy

4.23 of 5 stars 4.23  ·  rating details  ·  44 ratings  ·  4 reviews
Islamic philosophy has often been treated as being largely of historical interest, belonging to the history of ideas rather than to philosophical study. This volume successfully overturns that view.

Bil ki ikidir halkın ilmi
Onlarda ziyade yok bu hepsi
Biri hakikat erişilemez
Diğeri batıl, tahsile değmez

İbn Sina ya göre "felsefe'nin gayesi" "insan için mümkün olduğu kadarıyla, tüm mevcutların hakikatlarine vakıf olmak"tır.

"Bilmen gerekirki, mütemadiyen şehvetlerine öncelik tanıyıp onların müzmini olanlar, onlara dalıp gidenler neticede öyle bir noktaya erişirler ki, artık ne onlardan haz alabilirler, ne de onları terkedebilirler"
Dina Kaidir
Both volumes take the place of honor on my desk, where it remains within reach for quick references. I loved reading about one of the richest intellectual traditions in the world from individual thinkers as well as philosophical ideas.

Over the years, I have used this book for my research, read bits and pieces that were relevant but this is the first time I have read it like a "book" from start to finish. I am so glad I did. Al-hamdu li'Llah.
