    Islamic occasionalism, and its critique by Averoës and Aquinas.Majid Fakhry - 1958 - London,: Allen & Unwin.
    Originally published in 1958. Occasionalism is generally associated in the history of philosophy with the name of Malébranche. But long before this time, the Muslim Theologians of the ninth and tenth centuries had developed an occasionalist metaphysics of atoms and accidents.

    A History of Islamic Philosophy.Majid Fakhry - 1983 - New York: Cambridge University Press.
    The first comprehensive survey of Islamic philosophy from the seventh century to the present, this classic discusses Islamic thought and its effect on the cultural aspects of Muslim life.

    Justice in Islamic Philosophical Ethics: Miskawayh's Mediating Contribution.Majid Fakhry - 1975 - Journal of Religious Ethics 3 (2):243 - 254.
    The author examines the development of the concept of justice in Arabic philosophical ethics, which culminates in the attempt by Miskawayh to harmonize Plato's concept of what it means to be just with Aristotle's concept of acting justly. Miskawayh's contribution, which draws upon Neo-Platonic and Stoic authors of late antiquity, is shown to shed light on possible modes of interpreting the ethical doctrines of Plato and Aristotle and even to point the way to the solution of some exegetical problems raised (...)

    Rationality in Islamic Philosophy.Majid Fakhry - 2017 - In Eliot Deutsch & Ron Bontekoe (eds.), A Companion to World Philosophies. Oxford, UK: Blackwell. pp. 504–514.
    The discussion of rationality can only be conducted today against the backdrop of the raging postmodernist and deconstructionist onslaught on the “citadel of reason,” as one writer has put it recently. Although the current postmodernist skirmishes are launched against modernism as represented by Descartes and Kant, it is clear that the proclamation of the bankruptcy of reason or “the end of philosophy,” as both Martin Heidegger and Richard Rorty have put it, goes well beyond the modernism of Descartes and Kant.
