MIN 406 – Islamic Philosophy

Like all other philosophical traditions in different cultures and civilisations, what is called ‘Islamic philosophy’ is the outcome of the intellectual efforts of a great many thinkers over the centuries, who all belong to Islamic civilisation, and who respond to cognitive challenges arising from the encounter with various schools of thought. This module will systematically and critically examine, in a systematic and critical way, major schools of Islamic philosophy and the problems/issues around which these schools built their intellectual edifice. The emphasis throughout the course will be placed on combining a historical/archaeological approach with a modern, problem-oriented one. The rationale behind this choice of approach is to enable the students to use the sources available in historical settings to tackle present-day issues.
