A Philosophical Inquiry into the Foundation of Knowledge

 

This beautiful work written with deep insight and in readable English covers essential aspects of the Islamic philosophy of knowledge. Drawing on the writings of the classical and modern Islamic philosophers, the author has presented in a coherent manner the Islamic philosophical foundation of knowledge that extends far beyond the boundaries of the material world. The comparison of Islamic epistemology with that of the West brings into sharp focus the substance of the Islamic philosophy of knowledge with all its complexities. A must read for all students of Islamic philosophy, a taste of the deep intellectual heritage of Islam. - Sheikh Abdul Mabud - Director General, The Islamic Academy Cambridge United Kingdom
