Reviews

"It is important in a book like this to point to the impact of science on philosophy. Especially to the new concepts introduced by science in relation to mathematics, time, and infinity as related to the philosophical issue of the eternity of the world and the Qur'anic concept of time. In addition, to the new scientific concepts related to space, motion, and matter, as related to the very concept of inertia; were Muslim scholars had difficulty accepting the reversed law of inertia presented by Aristotle in a static universe, while the Qur'an stated clearly that everything is in a continuous motion in a dynamic world view."
