Intellectual History of the Islamicate World

By Sabine Schmidtke Published 2016

Intellectual History of the Islamicate World (Brill, 2016) edited by Sabine Schmidtke, Professor in the School of Historical Studies, provides a forum for research that systematically crosses the boundaries between three major disciplines of academia and research, viz. Islamic Studies, Jewish Studies and the study of (Eastern) Christianity. It encourages discussion among representatives of these and related disciplines, with a view to promoting a new understanding of intellectual history in all its facets throughout the Islamicate world, from its emergence until modern times and from different methodological perspectives. Intellectual History of the Islamicate World covers such themes as philosophy, theology, exegesis, law and legal methodology, sciences and medicine.
