This is a study of epistemological meaning of the Oneness of God and its implications on the worldview of unity of divine knowledge. On the basis of this cardinal epistemology the ontological deduction and evidential (ontic) description and explanation of unified world-systems are presented. The result is a new and challenging, path breaking work of analytical depth with extensive comparative study on the theme of unity of learning systems that are driven by the episteme of oneness of God as the premise of unity of divine knowledge explaining all world-systems.2006 0-7734-6030-6

The nature of this kind of study is such that it has to go on for a longtime until a clear vision of Islamic epistemology becomes identifiable through a host of writings emerging out of an extensive and intensive academic labor. This work will greatly contribute to a further crystallization of an authentic Islamic point of view premised on Tawhid on the age-old problem of human knowledge.2006 0-7734-6029-2
