As Seyyed Hossein Nasr attests, within this tradition, philosophizing is done in a world in which prophecy is the central reality of life--a reality related not only to the realms of action and ethics but also to the realm of knowledge. Comparisons with Jewish and Christian philosophies highlight the relation between reason and revelation, that is, philosophy and religion. Nasr presents Islamic philosophy in relation to the Islamic tradition as a whole, but always treats this philosophy as philosophy, not simply as intellectual history. In addition to chapters dealing with the general historical development of Islamic philosophy, several chapters are devoted to later and mostly unknown philosophers. The work also pays particular attention to the Persian tradition. Nasr stresses that the Islamic tradition is a living tradition with significance for the contemporary Islamic world and its relationship with the West. In providing this seminal introduction to a tradition little-understood in the West, Nasr also shows readers that Islamic philosophy has much to offer the contemporary world as a whole.

    Memang sukar untuk menyusuri sejarah falsafah Islam sejak ia menyeberang dari peradaban Yunani kepada tradisi keilmuan tamadun Islam; baik dalam bentuk pertembungan antara konsep metafizik yang dibayangi Plato dan Aristotle di bawah ilmuwan seperti Ibnu Sina (sebelum dan sesudahnya) dengan aqidah dan worldview Islam hingga membawa proses Islamisasi ilmu di bawah ketajaman pena dan ketelitian tapisan Imam al-Ghazali dan juga Imam Fakhruddin al-Razi sebelum perbincangan tauhid dan metafizik dibaya Memang sukar untuk menyusuri sejarah falsafah Islam sejak ia menyeberang dari peradaban Yunani kepada tradisi keilmuan tamadun Islam; baik dalam bentuk pertembungan antara konsep metafizik yang dibayangi Plato dan Aristotle di bawah ilmuwan seperti Ibnu Sina (sebelum dan sesudahnya) dengan aqidah dan worldview Islam hingga membawa proses Islamisasi ilmu di bawah ketajaman pena dan ketelitian tapisan Imam al-Ghazali dan juga Imam Fakhruddin al-Razi sebelum perbincangan tauhid dan metafizik dibayangi oleh tradisi kalam. SHN turut menyorot ahli falsafah yang tumbuh daripada peradaban Andalusia, sebelum memberikan tumpuan besar kepada kesuburan falsafah Islam yang mula mendapat nama yang sebenarnya, al-hikmah al-muta'aliyah di wilayah Parsi dan sekiranya termasuk India. Buku ini bagi saya, tidak menjanjikan perjalanan yang selesa untuk melumati bukan saja konsep-konsep metafizik, bahkan tokoh-tokohnya sendiri juga barangkali menjadi nama-nama yang sukar untuk diingati, tetapi buku ini menjadi sebahagian proses yang membuka ruang pemikiran peribadi yang mungkin selama ini terbentuk dalam satu kerangka yang agak rigid atas nama fiqh. Saya boleh bersetuju dengan pengarangnya, SHN, tentang kepentingan bidang falsafah Islam dan al-hikmah al-muta'aliyah ini diambil kira dalam pertembungan pemikiran antara Islam dengan pandangan hidup Barat khususnya modenisme (juga pascamodenisme kerana pengarang ini tidak terlalu memisahkan antara dua jalur pemikiran besar Barat itu) meskipun akur perlu berhati-hati terhadap konsep falsafah tracendentalnya yang berasaskan apa yang dinamakannya sebagai tradisi Abrahamic yang juga membawa kepada jalur pemikiran yang tidak kurang hebat cabarannya, iaitu pluralisme agama dan agama tracedental (kebenaran rentas agama, perkongsian kebenaran pada peringkat metafizik meski berbeza jalan mencapainya). Pandangan beliau sangat kuat terpancar pada Bab Reflections on Islam and Modern Thought dalam buku ini yang barangkali boleh dianggap sebagai buah yang dapat kita capai selepas 'mengukah' pohon sejarah falsafah Islam dan al-hikmah al-mutaa'liyah dalam buku ini, sekali gus mengukuhkan pandangannya terhadap keperluan untuk menggunakan landasan yang dibina ilmuwan dan ahli falsafah silam dalam berdepan dengan idea modenisme dan pascamodenisme. Antara kenyataan yang saya kira berguna untuk direnungkan ialah bagaimana konsep modenisme tidak boleh diambil mudah sehingga atas nama kemajuan/progress, ia cuba diharmonikan dengan Islam kerana pemikiran modenisme tidak datang secara hampa atau kosong, sebaliknya bersama-sama konsep-konsep yang membangunkannya seperti berpusat pada kemanusiaan semata-mata dan memutuskan hubungan dengan aspek sakral atau kesucian. Begitu juga bagaimana SHN ketika menyorot al-hikmah al-muta'aliyah dan faham ishraqi ketika Sekolah Tehran pada separuh kedua abad yang lalu, beliau ada menyentuh bagaimana perbincangan mengenai pemikiran mula beralih daripada kelompok ahli falsafah kepada ahli hukum/fuqaha' yang kurang menguasai perbincangan pada tahap metafizik yang pada segi tertentu juga berlaku di wilayah kita sehingga kebanyakan isu dan cabaran pemikiran dijawab dengan menggunakan landasan serta kerangka yang bersifat fiqh.

    A good intro, perhaps skewed towards Persian traditions, but he justifies this. He was at his best discussing ideas imo, but even then he does take a weird creationist turn towards the end. A good starting point though for a beginner with some acquaintance with Western philosophical traditions.

    The book is not very well-structured. They are like series of unrelated material which happen to be about later Islamic philosophy. Still, I have to mention, its chapter about Ibn Sina's distinction between essence and existence is a brief account of central problems of Islamic metaphysics. The book is not very well-structured.

    Great introduction to Islamic philosophical thought, especially after Avicenna.

    Great book but with a strong bias towards the Shia/Iranian/Persian philosophy. Mostly focussed on ontology and metaphysics with almost total disregard of political philosophy.
