Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Avicenna and the Aristotelian Tradition: Introduction to Reading Avicenna's Philosophical Works: Second, Revised and Enlarged Edition, Including an Inventory of Avicenna's Authentic Works presents the table of contents, a preface, acknowledgements, an introduction, and the layout of the work. The book attempts to set the record straight and provide a starting point for the future study of Avicenna. It presents translations of a series of texts in which Avicenna and his major disciples discuss his attitude toward his own philosophy and the Aristotelian tradition. The book offers a critical inventory and relative chronology of Avicenna's major philosophical works. Avicenna's philosophical work, as presented on the basis of his own statements and the inventory of his major philosophical writings defines itself by constant reference to the Aristotelian corpus and tradition, and stands in a manifest dialectical relationship to both of them.

Keywords: Aristotelian corpus; Aristotelian Tradition; Avicenna; philosophical work
