Chapter Summary

The indices present a list of subjects, authors, names, places, reference Qurʾānic passages, manuscripts and Arabic words relevant to the analysis of Avicenna's major philosophical works. Avicenna led an itinerant and turbulent life. His literary output, which spanned a period of more than forty years, was nevertheless immense. His works seem to approach one hundred, although their precise number has yet to be determined; they are extant in hundreds of manuscripts, while an equally large number of writings attributed to him and extant in as many manuscripts is apparently spurious or misattributed.

Keywords: Avicenna; philosophical works
