    Aḥmad B. Al-Ṭayyib Al-Saraḫsī, Réviseur de L’Introduction Arithmétique de Nicomaque de Gérase Et Rédacteur Des Rasā᾿Il Iḫwān Al-Ṣafā᾿.Guillaume de Vaulx D'Arcy - 2019 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 29 (2):261-283.
    Before Ṯābit b. Qurra's translation, there was a first Arabic version of Nicomachus’ Introduction to arithmetic. Full of mistakes, it was revised by an anonymous student of al-Kindī. Thanks to the part that Freudenthal and Levy have edited and translated, we are now able to identify this reviser as Aḥmad b. al-Ṭayyib al-Saraḫsī, who we also identified as the author of the Rasā᾿il Iḫwān al-Ṣafā᾿. The comparison of the gloss written by this reviser with a new fragment of Saraḫsī on (...)

    Ibn Raḥīq's Text on the Milky Way: Perception of the Milky Way in the Early Islamic Society.Andreas Eckart - 2019 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 29 (2):227-260.
    Ibn Raḥīq is an 11th century scholar who compiled a book on popular astronomy. This work included a section in which he summarizes basic knowledge of the Milky Way as it was wide spread in the first centuries after the hejira. Ibn Raḥīq gives a comprehensive overview of the perception of the Milky Way that reaches from its use as a test for knowledge of the religious tradition and for agricultural purposes on the one hand to an exact astronomical description (...)

    As Drops in Their Sea: Angelology Through Ontology in Faḫr Al-Dīn Al-Rāzī’s Al-Maṭālib Al-῾Āliya.Nora Jacobsen Ben Hammed - 2019 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 29 (2):185-206.
    In this article, I examine key passages from the Aš῾arite theologian Faḫr al- Dīn al-Rāzī’s final work, Al-Maṭālib al-῾āliya, in order to theorize Rāzī’s cosmology and angelology. In his attempt to prove the existence of these beings, Rāzī divides reality into material and intelligible realms. Angels, which signify the celestial intellects and spheres, exist as non-space-occupying beings and represent an aspect of the intelligible world. Of these, some are associated with celestial bodies, and others are entirely unassociated with materiality. I (...)

    Avicenna's Influence on Maimonides' “Epistle on Astrology”.Elon Harvey - 2019 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 29 (2):171-183.
    This paper shows for the first time that Maimonides significantly relied on Avicenna's “Refutation of astrology” when composing his own refutation, the “Epistle on astrology”. Maimonides consulted a copy of Avicenna's Refutation, partially using its structure as a model for his Epistle, and adapting some of its arguments. Therefore, it may be said with certainty that Maimonides carefully read at least one of Avicenna's works, and that his Epistle is not based solely on his own previous works, the “Commentary on (...)

    Ibn Al-Haytham, Ibn Sīnā, Al-Ṭūsī : Égalité Ou Congruence.Roshdi Rashed - 2019 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 29 (2):157-170.
    As their greek predecessors, mathematicians and arab-speaking philosophers raised several important epistemological questions. One of those questions concerns the concept of equality and the concept of congruence of geometric magnitudes. What was the meaning of such concepts? How were they related to the idea of movement? Answers to these questions were often combining metric elements and other, philosophical elements, and I chose to study those of a mathematician, of a philosopher, and of a mathematician-philosopher.RésuméLes mathématiciens et les philosophes arabophones, comme (...)

    An Exceptional Sage and the Need for the Messenger: The Politics of Fiṭra in a 12th-Century Tale.Raissa A. von Doetinchem de Rande - 2019 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 29 (2):207-226.
    This paper argues that Ibn Ṭufayl in his Ḥayy ibn Yaqẓān offers a surprisingly intellectual reading of the term fiṭra and one that has significant consequences for our understanding of the story. We will see that at crucial junctures in the text, fiṭra emerges solely in an intellectual context, implying a gulf amongst humanity that defies common understandings of the term as egalitarian. This gulf, I argue, illuminates the political implications of the tale. For while he emphasizes the broad compatibility (...)
