Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent parallel Arabic-English edition of Christian Arabic work which is finally made highly accessible and readily available for a vast readership. Yahya b. Adi himself was one of the most prominent Christian individuals in the humanistic circles of during the high culture of classical Islam known to be in the circles of the likes of al-Farabi and al-Tawhidi.
The text itself is fully vowelled and translated with notes and introduction by one of the most eminent scholars of late antiquity Christian studies. Highly recommended for all Chrstian scholars.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D. J. Spaulding on April 13, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Yahya ibn 'Adi is a little known (in the West) Arab philosopher and theologian who lived in medieval Baghdad and was a student of the great Abu Nasir al-Farabi. While he wrote in Arabic, he was not a Muslim, but rather an Syrian Orthodox Christian. He is an important figure in medieval Islamic philosophy as he translated Syriac books of philosophy (themselves translated from the original Greek) into Arabic, thus making figures like Aristotle accessible to later Arab philosophers.

This book, while short, provides an excellent introduction and summary of Aristotelian ethical philosophy. The translation is very good (and provides the Arabic original as well) and the introduction by Professor Griffith gives a very clear picture of Yahya ibn 'Adi and his ideas. For anyone interested in medieval Arab philosophy, the history of Eastern Christianity, or Aristotelian thought this volume is a must read.
