An Introduction to Islamic Philosophy introduces the major subjects of discussion in Islamic Philosophy through the material adapted from lectures and papers presented by the late Murtada Mutahhari, who was renowned for his ability to present complex philosophical subjects in an easily understandable manner.

Existence, being, and nonbeing primarily feature in the first section of the book; this section includes the classic ideas of Avicenna, Suhrawardi, Mulla Sadra and Sabazivari on the nature of existence.

Other major topics include, knowledge and perception, concepts, causality, and change.
This comprehensive introduction to Islamic philosophy concludes with a discussion of questions related to the Divine attributes, essence and deeds, such as the problem of evil and the question of predestination.

In addition to lucid explanations of these topics, the Arabic technical terminology traditionally employed in discussions of Islamic philosophy is also presented, thus facilitating further study in this subject area.

This much-awaited volume is particularly ideal for undergraduate or postgraduate courses on philosophy and for those who wish to acquire a broader understanding of Islamic Philogophy or the Islamic heritage

Abd al-Rassul Obudiyyat studied at Sharif University of Technology i Tehran and also received a seminary education in Qom, Iran. His primary field of interest is Islamic philosophy - a field in which he has published a number of books and articles in Persian.
