Moving the orbs: Astronomy, physics, and metaphysics, and the problem of celestial motion according to Ibn sīnā

Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 21 (02):165-214 (2011)
Abstract
Ibn S's celestial kinematics represents an important aspect of his cosmology but has up to now received little attention in the secondary literature. After a short overview of some key features of his cosmology, this article attempts to clarify the role played by the separate intellects, the celestial souls, and the celestial bodies in causing celestial motion. It challenges the common view that Ibn S adhered to the theory of ten separate intellects developed by al-Fbnā's cosmological method
