Islamic Science an Illustrated Study This is the first illustrated study of the whole of Islamic science ever undertaken. Basing himself on the traditional Islamic concept of science and its transmission and classification, the author discusses various branches of the Islamic sciences. The author then turns to the application of the Islamic sciences to such domains as medicine, pharmacology, alchemy, agriculture, and various forms of technology. In the final section of the work, the author discusses the role of the human being in the universe. The book combines an account of the morphology and brief history of the various sciences with illustrations drawn from sources spread throughout the Islamic world. Contains over 160 color photographs.
