This invaluable work is the first attempt to present in connected form a History of Philosophy in Islam. This book does not claim to bring about a completion of such a task but it indisputably asserts to be the initiating step in the direction.

The text commences with a detailed study of Ancient Arabia and then goes on to discuss the first Caliphs and the significance of Medina. The Sh’ites, the Qmyyads, the Abbasids and then traces the fall of the Caliphate. Various other topics significant to the subject such as Oriental Wisdom, Greek Science, Grammatical Science, ethical teaching, Doctrinal systems are elaborated and faithfully depicted.

This book also offers a study of the life and works of the Neo Platonic Aristotelians of the East, such as Kindi, Farabi, Ibn Markawaih, Ibn-Sina, and Ibn-al Haitham. A brief but vivid sketch is drawn of their entire life histories as well as significant contributions made by them to the cause. After discussing the outcome of philosophy in the East and in the West the work concludes with a discourse on Ibn Khaldum and the Arabs and Scholasticism. As the first and foremost endeavour in this field, this work should be welcomed with a great deal of enthusiasm by students as well as scholars.
