' C’est en 1169 qu’a lieu l’entrevue célèbre entre Averroès et le prince Abû Yûsuf Ya’qûb : le prince souhaitant qu’on lui explique les textes d’Aristote, Averroès se voit charger de faire le commentaire de toute l’œuvre du philosophe grec. C’est un tournant majeur dans l’histoire de la pensée européenne,
car les textes d’Aristote traduits et commentés en arabe entraînent ainsi au Moyen Age une floraison de nouvelles interprétations et réfutations. '

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300116683, Hardcover)

Born in 1126 to a family of Maliki legal scholars, Ibn Rushd, known as Averroes, enjoyed a long career in religious jurisprudence at Seville and Cordoba while at the same time advancing his philosophical studies of the works of Aristotle. This translation of Averroes’ Long Commentary on Aristotle’s De Anima brings to English-language readers the complete text of this influential work of medieval philosophy. Richard C. Taylor provides rich notes on the Long Commentary and a generous introduction that discusses Averroes’ most mature reflections on Aristotle’s teachings as well as Averroes' comprehensive philosophical views on soul and intellect. It is only in the Long Commentary that Averroes finally resolves to his satisfaction the much vexed issue of the nature of intellect, Taylor shows.
