'The Cambridge Companion to Arabic Philosophy was long overdue. The Arabic philosophical tradition has often been treated as marginal by Western scholars, but this work attests to its great riches. It has, however, remained much understudied, hence, the editors aim to 'invite' readers to the study of Arabic philosophy and to provide 'a basic grounding in some of the main figures and themes'. These are modest goals in comparison to what this excellent new Cambridge Companion achieves. ... The Cambridge Companion to Arabic Philosophy will not only be of interest to scholars and students of Arabic philosophy, but should also be of interest to students and scholars working more generally on later Greek philosophical traditions and on philosophy in the Middle Ages. The work should remain a very good reference for a number of years to come.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
'By any reckoning this is a remarkable book.' Reference Reviews
'... a rich and up-to-date assessment of the varied philosophy written in Arabic - including Christian and Jewish as well as Muslim thinkers ...' The Heythrop Journal
'... a precious depository of scholarship and an indispensable tool for anyone who wants to acquire a comprehensive view of Arabic philosophy, or gain a deeper appreciation of its different authors and parts. From it, the reader facing Arabic philosophy for the first time will get a basic orientation in this important area of culture, the student will acquire updated, competent and enlightening information, and the researcher will find a sure and clear guide to the intricacies of the field.' International Journal of the Classical Tradition
