Avicenna (Ibn Sina) (circa 980-1037) enjoyed a great renown both as philosopher and as a physician during the late Middle Ages. French and English-language essays discuss a variety of topics, including the philosopher's metaphysics, stylistics, his ontology of relation, his influence upon Medieval Jewish philosophy, the Golden Age of Arabic Philosophy 1000-1350, his influence upon Duns Scotus' proof for the existence of God, Maimonides' reticence toward Ibn Sina, his treatise On Animals: Between First Teacher & the Physician, and more.
