Review of Metaphysics 10 (1):172-172 (1956)

A translation of an important and neglected work of Averroes, with an excellent introduction, placing the book in its historical context and evaluating it philosophically. In the course of his close and meticulous refutation of Al Ghazali, who had denied the possibility of a rational philosophy and advanced arguments for the priority of mystical revelation, Averroes discusses the eternality of the world, the logical relation between cause and effect, and the relation between potentiality and actuality. There is also a separate volume of notes, indices and an interesting list of contradictions to be found in Aristotle. A significant scholarly work. --A. R.
