The course traces a general history of Islamic Philosophy from the 8th to the 13th century, following the evolution of thought from the introduction of Greek philosophy into Muslim world. We will try to mark the most important figures in this history and the major stages and issues in which Islamic Philosophy passed through. We will also deal with evolution of the thoughts and the intersections between philosophy and theology, like, above all, ethics, knowledge of God and the immortality of the soul.
