  1. Michael E. Marmura (ed.) (2005). The Metaphysics of the Healing. Brigham Young University.
    Avicenna, the most influential of Islamic philosophers, produced _The Healing_ as his magnum opus on his religious and political philosophy. Now translated by Michael Marmura, _The Metaphysics_ is the climactic conclusion to this towering work. Through Marmura’s skill as a translator and his extensive annotations, Avicenna’s touchstone of Islamic philosophy is more accessible than ever before. In _The Metaphysics_, Avicenna examines the idea of existence, and his investigation into the cause of all things leads him to a meditation on the (...)

    Michael E. Marmura (2002). Ghazali and Ash'arism Revisited. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 12 (1):91-110.
    At the basis of Ghazali's criticisms of Ash'arite kalam is the thesis that its primary function is the defence of traditional Islamic belief, the 'aqida, against the distortions of heretical innovations (al-bida'). Kalam is not an end in itself and it is error to think that the mere engagement in it constitutes the experientially religious. In the I[hdotu]ya' he maintains in effect that when it is pursued as an end in itself, its dogmas can constitute a veil preventive of the (...)

    Michael E. Marmura (1994). Ghazali's Chapter on Divine Power in the Iqti Ād. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 4 (2):279.
    The theological foundations of Ghazali's causal theory are fully expressed in the chapter on the attribute of divine power in his al-Iqtid. The basic doctrine which he proclaims and argues for is that divine power, an attribute additional to the divine essence, is one and pervasive. It does not consist of a multiplicity of powers that produce a multiplicity of effects, but is a unitary direct cause of each and every created existent. In a defense of the doctrine of kasb, (...)

    Michael E. Marmura (2008). Some Questions Regarding Avicenna's Theory of the Temporal Origination of the Human Rational Soul. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 18 (1):121-138.
    In Avicenna's expositions of his theory of the temporal origination of the human rational soul, its th, one meets difficulties in understanding of what he actually means. Some of the expressions used are left unexplained and one has to extract their meaning from discussions given in a different context. There are also ambiguities in his use of such terms as al-aql al-kull (the intellect of the whole [universel]'), the distinction is not uniformly observed. In a number of his works the (...)

Despite its attempted refutation by (...)
