About this Item

The first of the two volumes published in 2011 consist of the bio-bibliography on the history of astrology, as an eighth field of science covered by the series, together with additions and corrections – supplements to the volume on astronomy, which was the first volume in the series. The second volume contains the supplements to the volumes published earlier on mathematics, geography, music, military arts, natural and applied sciences, and medical sciences on one hand, and a bibliography of on books on the classification and methodology of sciences written during the Ottoman period, on the other. Some additions were made to the entries about authors included in earlier volumes; thus, information obtained later about 218 authors and their works was added. A list of nearly 2000 maps was added to the supplement to the volume on geography. The Introduction by Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu recapitulates the overall features and findings of the project during the twenty-five years of its implementation. It also gives valuable information on the science of astrology in Islam, how it was perceived and practiced, a classification and description of the main types of works on astrology observable in the body of Ottoman astrology literature, and an evaluation of the main trend and features of scientific activity conducted in this field in the Muslim world.
