Do Islamic and Western philosophy have any common ground? This ambitious volume shows that the answer is yes. It consists of essays in comparative philosophy written by prominent scholars from around the world. In their essays, they mull over topics such as existence, causality, and the soul. Mulla Sadra, Ghazzali, and Averroes are discussed, as are Aquinas, Heidegger, and Parmenides.
