فيلسوف مسلم اشتهر بإتقان العلوم الحكمية وكانت له قوة في صناعة الطب.ـ
وضع عدة مصنفات، كان أشهرها كتاب حصر فيه أنواع وأصناف العلوم بعنوان "إحصاء العلوم".ـ
سمي الفارابي "المعلم الثاني"، بعد "المعلم الأول" أرسطو؛ لاهتمامه بالمنطق وشرحه مؤلفات أرسطو المنطقية.ـ

من أشهر كتبه
كتاب الموسيقى الكبير
آراء أهل المدينة الفاضلة
الجمع بين رأي الحكيمين
التوطئة في المنطق
السياسة المدنية
إحصاء
