  1. Peter Adamson (2002). Before Essence and Existence: Al-Kindi's Conception of Being. Journal of the History of Philosophy 40 (3):297-312.
    This paper studies the first metaphysical theory in Arabic philosophy, that of al-Kindi, as found in "On First Philosophy" and other of his works. Placing these works against the background of translations produced in al-Kindi's circle (the "Theology of Aristotle," which is the Arabic version of Plotinus, and the "Liber de Causis," the Arabic version of Proclus' "Elements of Theology"), it argues that al-Kindi has two conceptions of being: "simple" being, which excludes predication and derives from Neoplatonism, and "complex" being, (...)

    Naturwissenschaftliches Denken, wie es von altgriechischen Naturphilosophen begründet und in der Antike weiterentwickelt wurde, verfiel mit dem Aufstieg der monotheistischen Offenbarungsreligionen, die die Neugier auf die natürliche Wirklichkeit als eitle Bemühung ansahen, welche nichts zum Seelenheil beitrage. Die neuzeitliche Naturwissenschaft nahm ihren Ausgang in der Renaissance, die die kreativen Fähigkeiten des menschlichen Denkens wiederentdeckte. Sie verdankt aber auch sehr viel dem Aufbruch philosophisch-theologischen Denkens im Mittelalter, der dem „Buch der Natur“ eine Anerkennung als gleichberechtigten Zugang zur Wahrheit neben dem „Buch (...)

  5. Ahmad Ighbariah (2012). Between Logic and Mathematics: Al-Kindī's Approach to the Aristotelian Categories. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 22 (1):51-68.
    What is the function of logic in al-Kind's theory of categories as it was presented in his epistle On the Number of Aristotle's Books and Quality, whereas the rest of the categories are thought to be no more than different combinations of these two categories with the category Substance. The discussion will pay special attention to the function of the categories of Quantity and Quality as mediators between logic and mathematics.
