Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book, which provides a historical and comparative study of logic in Arabic in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 16th century to the end of the 19th century, using authentic, completely unknown and unpublished manuscripts in the field of logic in Arabic. The priority task of the book is to refute the thesis generally accepted in former Yugoslavia and abroad that Bosnia and Herzegovina is some sort of a black hole, emptiness in space and time, devoid of any kind of creativity, especially in the field of philosophy. The book points to a continuous and very stabile intellectual Aristotelian tradition in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and continuous ?warming up? of Avicenna and his fundamental pieces in logic, despite the fact that it all happens in an ?antiphilosophical? environment and ?antiphilosophical? time.

Keywords: Arabic philosophy; Bosnia; Herzegovina; intellectual Aristotelian tradition; logic in Arabic; Yugoslavia
