''If it were God who sent them . . .'': Aristotle and al-fārābī on prophetic vision

Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 18 (2):211-246 (2008)
Al-Fbs title of Second Teacher after Aristotle is well-warranted. Al-Fbs work serves to illuminate the writings of the First Teacher in interesting and overlooked ways that go beyond the parameters of Aristotelian logic. Credence is lent to this assessment through the analysis of a specific topic, namely, authentic prophetic vision. At first glance, this seems like a strange assertion to make given Aristotler recognizes and completes in a way that is, in large part, faithful to and consistent with the corpus of Aristotle as we read it today. In the end, al-Fbī provides insight into how a properly Aristotelian theory of authentic prophetic vision could be realized
