Description from the publisher:
The essays presented in the History and Philosophy of Islamic Science discuss the principles behind the different sciences cultivated in the Islamic world from the third century of the Islamic era onwards and the place of science in relation to the other branches of Islamic learning. In defining what Islamic Science means, Professor Bakar shows how these sciences are organically related to the fundamental teachings of Islam. He also highlights the similarities and differences of the Islamic approach from the secular modern approach.
