This course is an introduction to the major issues, figures and texts of the Islamic philosophical tradition. In addition to its intrinsic value, the Islamic tradition holds great interest and importance because it is our sister tradition, rooted in the same sources of Abrahamic religion and Greek philosophy. Yet, because it has not followed the same descent into reductive materialism and narrowly analytic paradigms as the Western tradition, Islamic philosophy can suggest ways for us to reimagine the Western tradition and retrieve our own visionary and transformative possibilities.
