This is a spectacular record of Islamic philosophy. I'm quite surprised with the fineness of Seyyed Hossein Nasr and Mehdi Aminrazavi, two fantastic philosophers. It is not a book about Islam it is a book about the Great Persia and all its rich history. I do commend to those who enjoy heavy philosophy and history.
