[Classical Text Diploma] The Incoherence of The Philosophers

Tahāfut al Falāsifa | Muḥammad al-Ghazālī

"This famous work was intended as a criticism of the principles and doctrines of Greek philosophy as applied by, notably, Ibn Sina and al-Farabi to Islamic teachings. The book was well received and considered a successful proof of the incoherence of the philosophers. Ghazali criticises the philosophers on 20 issues, among which three are serious enough to have merited the accusation of unbelief. We will discuss how well Ghazali demonstrates the incoherence of the philosophers, and Ibn Rushd’s equally famous response in Tahafut al-Tahafut (Incoherence of the Incoherence)." - Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi [Introduction to Classical Islamic Texts Diploma]

Tahāfut al Falāsifa Introduction:


What are the students saying.....

“Whilst I have had an interest in the Islamic Sciences for a number of years, al-hamdulillah, I noticed that due to the lack of long-term structure – a key component – the extent of my progression was limited. Cambridge Islamic Sciences have consistently offered seminars and courses where Shaykh Akram’s teaching has been structured and coherent. This is a fabulous opportunity to study with Shaykh Akram; and one I hope I do not miss, insha’Allah!” - Sajid, Derby, UK  [Classical Islamic Texts Diploma Student]
