This work is a scholarly blend of history and philosophy. Its main objective is to place the history of science and philosophy in Islamic civilization into a proper historical perspective. Attempting to provide a framework of history, this book aims at developing tools by which the history of Islamic science and philosophy can be properly examined and identified. To adequately carry out of task, the author argues that we need an epistemology of science that must be extracted from history. In short, this piece aspires to re-establish the historical framework of Islamic science tradition. 'Science' and 'scientific' here are not to be understood exclusively as referring to empirical or experimental disciplines dealing with the physical phenomena, but rather, more inclusively, they portray a systematic and formulated knowledge of a specified subject. The work is original in the sense that it offers a new framework for the history of science in Islamic civilization, which is interestingly applicable to other civilizations as well. It is an investigation into the nature of a scientific tradition not only from the historical perspective, but from the philosophical (epistemological) and sociological perspective as well.
