Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0906094445, Hardcover)

Al-Farabi (d. 950 A.D.), arguably the most original and influential Muslim philosopher of the Middle Ages, wrote on subjects as diverse as music, medicine, and political theory, as well as logic, language and grammar, religion and metaphysics. The present work compares the Arabic terminology of Al-Farabi with that of his predecessors, by using their own sets of definitions. An English translation is also provided in a separate volume. Wherever possible, Greek parallel terminology is provided, together with the Hebrew and Latin terminologies used in the mediaeval translations of Al-Farabi's works. The work's two volumes include detailed indices, a detailed bibliography of the philosopher, and an interpretative essay.
