If you don’t know the question, the answer remains meaningless.
Al Ghazali’s(1058-1111), Tahafut al-falasifa, is no easy read. The proofs presented by the author shall enlighten those who are familiar with the polemics of philosophy in relation to metaphysics. The preface makes it clear that the proofs laid out have nothing against logic, the physical sciences or philosophy itself, as they – in Ghazali’s opinion - are neutral in man’s relationship with his creator.
“The Incoherence of the Philosophers” practically shatters arguments in the very language of philosophy; arguments that are made to limit the traditional aspects of religion and its metaphysical implications. In this regards the author has done an excellent job.
While his Ihya ulum al-din is meant for everyone. This book’s target audience is the Academia.
