A Window on a Forgotten Heritage:
Philosophy in Baghdad, Cordoba and Cairo
with Al Fârâbî, Averroès and Maïmonide By Professor Ali Benmakhlouf

Through three great philosophers (Al Fârâbî, Averroès, Maïmonide) and three key cities (Baghdad, Cordoba, Cairo), Professor Ali Benmakhlouf will introduce you to this often overlooked period of history. He will discuss the contribution of these thinkers to questions that are still very current, such as the relationship between science and religion. He will also discuss the influence of this intellectual boom on the European Renaissance, particularly in scientific fields such as medicine and cosmology.
