Editorial Reviews


“This is the first volume in a project sponsored by Edinburgh University under the general title of Islamic Surveys. The aim of the series is apparently to present a kind of encyclopaedia of Islamic history and culture in the form of monographs on specific topics and regions… [T]he attentive reader will discover many stimulating suggestions in Dr. Watt’s forthright and original presentation and discussion of the successive stages of theological debate.”

—H. A. R. Gibb, Islamic Philosophy and Theology

“[The] chief merit is that it directs the attention of Islamists to the need for an adequate sociology of Islamic philosophy and an adequate sociology of Islamic theology.”

—Muhsin Mahdi, Islamic Philosophy and Theology

“The book is more than an introduction… It is an interpretation of the development of Islamic philosophy and theology within the Islamic political and social context. Its concern is with the sociology of knowledge… [A]nalyses are stimulating and important… [T]he author… has succeeded in placing Islamic theology and philosophy in their proper historical setting.”

—Michael E. Marmura, Philosophy East and West
