“The Arab philosophical legacy: Alfarabi, Avicenna, Avempace, Averroes, Abenjaldun. Contemporary readings” by Mohamed Àbed Yabri
Against the backdrop of the political and intellectual concerns of the contemporary Arab world, this work analyzes medieval Islamic thought from a critical and rationalist position. This intelligent and controversial reconstruction, based on a profound mastery of medieval Arabic sources and structured with the logical and methodological rigor of a current philosopher, will bring a new air to Andalusian studies and will contribute to its necessary renewal.(...) The central thesis of the author is the existence of an epistemological rupture in medieval Arab-Islamic thought that is represented by the radical rationalism of the so-called Maghreb-Andalusian school.”
