IBN TAYMIYYA AGAINST THE GREEK LOGICIANS PDF

Hallaq Clarendon Press Description The introduction of Greek philosophy into the Muslim world left an indelible mark on Islamic intellectual history. Philosophical discourse became a constant element in even traditionalist Islamic sciences. However, Aristotelian metaphysics gave rise to doctrines about God and the universe that were found highly objectionable by a number of Muslim theologians, among whom the fourteenth-century scholar Ibn Taymiyya stood foremost. He therefore set out to refute philosophical logic, a task which culminated in one of the most devastating attacks ever levelled against the logical system upheld by the early Greeks, the later commentators, and their Muslim followers. His argument is grounded in an empirical approach that in many respects prefigures the philosophies of the British empiricists. That the work carries the insignia of Clarendon Press, Oxford is a further testimony of its enduring value.

Description From the Publishers The introduction of Greek philosophy into the Muslim world left an indelible mark on Islamic intellectual history. Philosophical discourse became a constant element in even traditionalist Islamic sciences.

However, Aristotelian metaphysics gave rise to doctrines about God and the universe that were found highly objectionable by a number of Muslim theologians, among whom the fourteenth-century scholar Ibn Taymiyya stood foremost. He therefore set out to refute philosophical logic, a task which culminated in one of the most devastating attacks ever levelled against the logical system upheld by the early Greeks, the later commentators, and their Muslim followers.

His argument is grounded in an empirical approach that in many respects prefigures the philosophies of the British empiricists.

Readership: Scholars of medieval and ancient philosophy; scholars and students of Islamic and Middle Eastern thought; philosophers specializing in the history of logic, metaphysics, and empiricism. Authors, editors, and contributors Translated with an introduction and notes by Wael B. His family had long been renowned for its learning , among his teachers, was Shams ud-Din Al-Maqdisi, first Hanbali Chief Justice of Syria following the reform of the judiciary by Baibars.

Qadi remembered with pride that it was he who had first permitted an intelligent and learned man like Ibn Taimiyah to give Fatwa. At the same age, he started delivering lectures. When he was thirty, he was offered the office of Chief Justice, but refused, as he could not persuade himself to follow the limitations imposed by the authorities. But to his knowledge of early and classical Hanbalism, he added not only that of the other schools of jurisprudence but also that of other literature.

He had an extensive knowledge of Quran, Sunnah, Greek philosophy, Islamic history, and religious books of others, as is evident from the variety of the books he wrote. That the work carries the insignia of Clarendon Press, Oxford is a further testimony of its enduring value.

Apart from students of Muslim thought, specialists in philosophies and historians of logic are sure to benefit from this sterling effort. Indeed, it should prove to be of equal interest to all the critics, Muslims or otherwise, of modern science.

This is in every way an excellent book. Hallaq has written what will surely be the standard work in the area for some time to come. Hallaq has proved an enormously capable writer in his field. His profound grasp of the discussions in medieval Arabic works on logic is evident here and in that regard it is an important book.
