‭This paper briefly reviews the evidence regarding Muʿtazilite presence in al-Andalus, and the evolvement of contemporary scholarship on this topic. It argues that the actual penetration of the Muʿtazila to al-Andalus was very limited, and that at no point did it amount to a significant presence among Muslims in al-Andalus. It also argues that a broader view of Andalusī intellectual history, a view which takes into account the Andalusī Jewish minority in general and the Karaites in particular, may explain the continuous significance of the Muʿtazila in the intellectual life of al-Andalus.‬
