University of Central Asia (UCA) PublishesThe Philosophy of Nature of Abu Ali ibn Sina: Analysis of the Concepts of Space, Movement and Time(in Russian) by Sunatullo Jonboboev, Senior Research Fellow at UCA Department of Cultural Heritage and Humanities.
The intellectual heritage of our ancestors from Central Asia and Iran has been used during the Reformation and the New Age by the societies and scholars of Western Europe, including Dante Alighieri, Albertus Magnus, W. Ockham, Thomas Aquinas, F. Bacon (inductive logic), G. Galileo, and R. Descartes- (the concept of “flying man”). This intellectual heritage also has been reinterpreted by thinkers of the twentieth century, such as Einstein. The fruitful influence of Muslim culture on the development of modern civilization has long been known and has been studied in such works as G. Sarton’s “Introduction to the History of Science” and Henri Corbin’s “History of Islamic Philosophy.” However, our compatriots today are indifferent toward this intellectual heritage. How we can fill the intellectual and spiritual gap in the minds of today’s youths, who are moving towards radicalism?
