TEHRAN, June 20 (MNA) -– Concurrent with the international conference to be held on Avicenna in Hamedan in September, Association of Glorious Works and Cultural Figures Publications with the cooperation of Bu-ali Sina (Avicenna) University of Hamedan will republish 22 precious works of Avicenna after the lapse of more than half a century.

Avicenna (980-1037) is a Muslim Iranian philosopher and physician. At the age of 18, he was rewarded for his medical abilities with the post of court physician to the Samanid ruler of Bukhara.

 

Regarded by Muslims as one of the greatest Islamic philosophers, Avicenna is an important figure in the fields of medicine and philosophy. One of his works The Canon of Medicine was widely used as a textbook in the Middle East and in Europe.

 

Avicenna's best-known philosophical work is Kitab ash-Shifa (Book of Healing), a collection of treatises on Aristotelian logic, metaphysics, psychology, the natural sciences, and other subjects. Avicenna's own philosophy was based on a combination of Aristotelianism and Neoplatonism.
