  4. 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 (...)

  7. 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').

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 (...)
