Reviews

Dallal masterfully controls the narrative with his encyclopedic approach to Islamic intellectual history and his full acquaintance with the literature. He is up-to-date on all aspects of Islamic intellectual and religious history, and has the superb skill of seeing many fields within that civilization within the shadows of each other.George Saliba, Columbia University -- George Saliba
It is the first serious treatment of the whole subject, superseding all earlier partial, incompetent and, for the most part, biased (through ignorance) works.Dimitri Gutas, Yale University, author of Greek Thought, Arabic Culture -- Dimitri Gutas
