Registration form NISIS Study Day “Islamic Philosophy?”, 12 April 2024

What is specifically Islamic about Islamic philosophy? The discipline of philosophy (Arabic: falsafa) finds its roots in ancient Greece and deals with topics that, if not universally relevant, are at least not specifically tied to Islamic tradition. So what is it that makes philosophy stand out as being Islamic? Is this related to the philosophers in question being Muslim or with the topics on which they work? Yet if the topics are different, then how does it relate to philosophy more generally? Can we even speak cogently about Islamic philosophy or is it better to speak of philosophy ‘in’ the Islamic world?
