  5. Richard M. Frank (1999). The Aš'arite Ontology: I Primary Entities. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 9 (02):163-.
    The present study seeks to lay out the most basic elements of the ontology of classical Aarite theology. In several cases this requires a careful examination of the traditional and the formal lexicography of certain key expressions. The topics primarily treated are: (1) how they understood and and essential natures; the systematic exploitation of the equivocities of certain expressions (e.g., aqna) within a general context in which other than words there are no universals proves to be elegant as well as (...)

  9. Richard M. Frank (1983). Moral Obligation in Classical Muslim Theology. Journal of Religious Ethics 11 (2):204 - 223.
    This essay analyzes two contrasting conceptions of ethics set forth in Muslim fundamental theology (kalām), namely, those of the Mu'tazilites and the Ash'arites of the fourth and fifth centuries a.h. (tenth and eleventh centuries c.e.). After set- ting forth a brief statement on the already well-studied position of the Mu'tazi- lites on human actions, the author devotes the rest of this essay to the less-studied position on human actions of the Ash'arites. Of special interest is his analysis of God's creation (...)
