An interesting discussion and commentary on Arabic philosophy as it was during the prominent Islamic Golden Age in the Early Middle Ages.
This was a pioneering work when it was published.
Al-Farabi was a renowned early Islamic philosopher, typically known as 'The Second Teacher' is philosophical tradition. He is credited with having preserved the original Greek texts during the Middle Ages.
