The first comprehensive survey of Islamic philosophy from the seventh century to the present, this classic discusses Islamic thought and its effect on the cultural aspects of Muslim life. Fakhry shows how Islamic philosophy has followed from the earliest times a distinctive line of development, which gives it the unity and continuity that are the marks of the great intellectual movements of history.
In addition to philosophical and theological currents, Professor Fakhry discusses the legalism, rationalism, and mysticism of Islamic thought, the cultural impact of Islam on the diverse aspects of Muslim life and the rise in the nineteenth century of Pan-Islamism which attempts to unite the politically disunited Islam in to a spiritual unity.
