Course Synopsis (course description) Apart from Islamic Epistemology and Islamic Ontology – that will be treated in special subjects, grouped in Common Course – this courses deal with general topics in Islamic Philosophy in a comprehensive manner– theoretical and practical, since the beginning of Islamic Philosophy until today. The approach is fully thematic as this considered to be the best approach to teach Islamic Philosophy in a manner that will give the students a deeper understanding of the subject, especially if compared to the historical approach. The systematics is in accordance with the more modern division of Islamic philosophy. Instead of dividing it into physics, metaphysics and theology, it is divided along the lines of Cosmology, Theology, Psychology, as well as of practical philosophy. Axiological and aesthetic aspects are also dealt with separately and sufficiently.
