This volume focuses on Ibn Sina - the Avicenna of the Latin West - and the enormous impact of his philosophy in both the Islamic and Christian worlds. Jules Janssens opens with a new introductory article, surveying the position of work in the field. The next studies look at Ibn Sina's work and thought, inspired by Alexandrian Neoplatonism on the one hand, and the Qur'an on the other, notably his views on the relationship between God and the world, within the context of Islam. There follow explorations of Ibn Sina's influence on later philosophers, first within the Islamic world and with particular reference to al-Ghazzali, but also, once translated into Latin, in the scholastic world of the West, on figures such as Albert the Great, Thomas Aquinas, and above all Henry of Ghent.

Dr Jules Janssens is based at the De Wulf-Mansion Centre for Philosophy of the Middle Ages and Ancient Philosophy, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.Review:
'For readers who do not already know the work of Janssens, this book is a good start.' Journal of Islamic Studies 'The primary strength of the volume is Janssen's erudition and the way in which he explores key concepts in Ibn Sina's thought in their historical contexts. ... In conclusion, the volume recommends itself to medievalists who are interested in Islamic thought and it rightly draws attention to the importance of Ibn Sina for western thought.' Bulletin of International Medieval Research
