Recent publications focused on Arabic/Islamic philosophy have traditionally considered this under the history of ideas and Oriental or Islamic studies. There is a need for a comprehensive collection of essays that treats Islamic philosophy as philosophy, and not merely as a conduit of intellectual history for delivering ideas from the ancient Greeks to medieval Christians. With this aim, The Routledge Companion to Islamic Philosophy is conceived as a well-structured and wide-ranging thematic approach, accessible for a broad spectrum of readers, from students to scholars interested in Islamic thought, philosophy, theology, and religious studies.
"Routledge Companion to Islamic Philosophy, edited by Taylor and López-Farjeat, is a wonderful collection of contemporary secondary sources on Islamic philosophy. It is a real boon not only for the specialists, but also for the scholars and students of the history of philosophy, especially those interested in ancient and medieval traditions."
