introduction of Greek philosophy into the Muslim
land had far reaching impact on Islamic intellectual
and cultural life in the 9th century. Can the
Greek philosophy of Plato, Aristotle and Plotinus

Yusuf Ya'qub al-Kinidy (died 866) was the first

a great Muslim thinker and a serious student of

bin Zakariya ar-Razi, a prolific author, was one
of the most brilliant geniuses of the middle ages
who wrote about philosophy, logic, astronomy and
Rush, Al-Razi, al Farabi and Ibn Sina all wrote
on philosophies of logic, medicine and belief.
