Samples from the Ibn Rushd Guest Book.
I was impressed with the mass of information available on this site... plus the aesthetics is great! I am a Portuguese philosophy student, and I truly lament to see that our whole tradition from the Al-Andaluz philosophers is practically unknowned to students... although this peninsula once was the western Islam, and our language & culture is pretty much in debt to Islamic legacy.
Thank you. I am hoping that a rediscovery of the that lost heritage would grow and I am glad you enjoyed our site.
Fahredin Shehu (Degree student of Literature) from Kosovo/ex Yugoslavia Very grateful for this valuable project. Something unique. I'm on searching for the long time and it's really pity that I didn't found it earlier. I would like to have as much as possible Ibn Rushd's commentaries on Aristotle what is my paper to be finished in middle of the next month. Please if you can send me some more details in firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com I'll be very pleased to accomplish that small project. es selamu aleykum
Br. Fahredin Shehu: Thank you for visiting our site. As for your request for Ibn Rushd's commentaries on Aristotle which I do not have in an electronic form at this time. They are however in a printed form. Any good university library would have them. There are a few translations into English while the rest are in Arabic. If you want the titles I would suggest that you visit the university of Michigan library catalog as they have a good collection of Arabic and English books. http://mirlyn.web.lib.umich.edu/ go to guest logon and search the catalog. You can e-mail the results to yourself from their site. I use it for all my research.
Thank you for valuable information Dr Merim Omar Hodzic Sarajevo Bosnia and Herzegovina
I am a student of Philosophy & Islamic Studies in the UK, what a discovery! I have been an avid student of Ibn Rushd since i first heard of him through a lecture about Aristotle. I have lamented at the lack of info available and the sheer ignorance of the Western System, be assured i will be bringing attention to the site. Is it possible to purchase hardback editions of Ibn Rushd's books in English? None of the bookshops i have enquired in even had him listed! Thank you.
Some of the books could be out of print. There is a book about him by prof. Majid Fakhry published by Oneworld publishing out of oxford. Also they just translated one of his books too. His other major works are published by the Gibb memorial trust. Try searching under his Latin name: Averroes.
Although I am a general surgeon of Pakistani origin who practised in the U.S. since 1972 & retired now, I have always been interested in Islamic history & Islamic contribution to arts & sciences. Ibn Rushd stands up as a giant figure in Islmaic philosophy. While vactioning in Ireland I came across a book in whic the author had emphatically described that the greatest Jewish philosopher Maimonides did nothing but plegiarized the work of Ibn Rushd, translated into Hebrew & Latin & took all the credit himself. I would like to know your comments about this. Dr. Ibrahim Mulla Lake Mary, Florida.
A wonderful site! One the best philosophical resources on the Internet.
Great site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I visit it frequently. Ibn Rushd is very relevant and significant for today. His great mind and contributions to humanity must be recognized; your site is testimony and recognition to this great thinker. Keep up the great work. Let me know if I can assist in any way.

I am student of philosophy. I need averose's work(tahafoto al-tahafot) Can you help me? please
The information is on the site.
I found in an article of Kenan Arnautovic: "Management of Missile Peripheral Nerve Injuries" published in Contemporary Neurosurgery Vol 23 No 11 from June 1, 2001 that : "...Al Rhazi performed one of the first recorded nerve sutures...". In no other place I could find such information. Is It true. Please can you check it and answer it. I know that it is not a matter of philosophy, but, we in Bosnia suffered much from missile peripheral nerve injuries and I wrote some materials about our experience in treatment of these injuries. I wont to be sure about this data before publishing it. Thank you in advanced.
Hello, I am currently enrolled in a Philosophy of Science class where Aristotle was discussed in great depth but there was no mention of Ibn Rushd. I got a print out from this site and gave it to my professor. The very next class, he spoke about Ibn Rushd and gave him credit for interpreting Aristotle! I wish modern western philosophy textbooks included Ibn Sina and especially Ibn Rushd...after all they too contributed to Western Philosophy as it is today.
congratulations. Very good site.
In fact i was very 2 excited to visit this site, as i am a history & islamic studies student, in addition i aquired some very useful informations & facts. Really this is a true tribute to 'Allama Ibn Rushd Qurdobi's soul.
Well done Saad.
