  1. Theory of Syllogisms with Categorical, Conditional and Disjunctive Connectives Developed by Arabian Logicians.Moussa Fatahine & Yagoubi Mahmmoud - 2020 - Studia Humana 9 (1):19-27.
    In this paper, we are trying to summarize the peak of achievement of the Arabian logicians of the fifteenth century by making a classification and sketching in familiar terms the conditional and subjunctive syllogisms in Muḥammad Ibn Yusūf al-SSinūsī’s work, i.e. in his explanation of Kitāb al-Muḫtaşar fī al-Manṭiq of al-Imām Muḥammad Ibn ʿArafa.

  2. The Status of Conditional Syllogism in Syllogistics.Moussa Fatahine & Yagoubi Mahmmoud - 2020 - Studia Humana 9 (1):12-18.
    The form of the conditional syllogism resembles that of the categorical syllogism, while its subject matter is at least a conditional premise, but its conclusion is always conditional conjunctive or disjunctive. This mixed structure to which we apply the rules of the categorical syllogism, is a structure of which Aristotle did not have an idea, and which the Stoics did not conceive, and which the non-Arabian logicians did not know until in modern times. But what we have to notice here (...)

  3. Reaching the Goal of Alchemy – Or: What Happens When You Finally Have Created the Philosophers’ Stone?Regula Forster - 2020 - Studia Humana 9 (1):40-48.
    Alchemy is the art of transforming base metals into precious ones, usually silver and/or gold. The most important method conceived to reach this goal was the creation of the elixir, also called the philosophers’ stone, which, applied to the prime-matter, would lead to an accelerated process of ripening of metals, eventually ending in gold. How did Arabo-Islamic alchemists suppose that the transmutation worked? What were the conditions the adept had to fulfil in order to succeed? And what did they think (...)

  4. Perspectives on the Notion of Truth in Arabic Philosophy.Hamdi Mlika - 2020 - Studia Humana 9 (1):28-39.
    In the present paper, I assume that the notion of “truth” in philosophy would not have been clarified and tackled properly, if philosophers did not take into account earlier Arabic Medieval research contributions and build upon previous research findings. In the first place, I embark on the scrutiny of the rich aspect of the Arabic Lexicon in terms of the “truth” meaning. In the second place, I take on the assumption that Arabic linguistic traditions imply different kinds of truths, depending (...)

  5. Arabic and Islamic Philosophy and Sciences: Method and Truth.Hany Moubarez - 2020 - Studia Humana 9 (1):1-4.
    What are Arabic and Islamic philosophy and sciences? How and where did they come about? I am trying in this preface to provide a short and brief answer to those two questions. Having done this, I sketch the contents of five papers trying to study Arabic and Islamic philosophy and sciences from its perspective to method and truth.

  6. Three Notes on the Method of Analysis and Synthesis in its Ancient and (Arabic) Medieval Contexts.Hany Moubarez - 2020 - Studia Humana 9 (1):5-11.
    Most historians and philosophers of philosophy and history of mathematics hold one interpretation or the other of the nature of method of analysis and synthesis in itself and in its historical development. In this paper, I am trying to prove – through three points – that, in fact, there were two understandings of that method in Greek mathematics and philosophy, and which were reflected in Arabic mathematical science and philosophy; this reflection is considered as proof also of this double nature (...)
