Illuminating the influence of the Islamic sciences

Journal Article


Abstract


  • George Saliba is well known to historians of science as one of the

    preeminent scholars of the mathematical sciences under Islam from

    the early Middle Ages to the Renaissance. For more than thirty

    years, he has been exploring the labyrinthine processes through

    which classical Greek and Persian astronomical and mathematical

    learning was acquired and developed by Islamic thinkers. In recent

    years he has also sought to come to a better understanding of how

    that knowledge was subsequently transmitted to Europe during the

    second half of the Middle Ages and the early modern period.
