Summary

Al-Ghazali is regarded as one of the most prominent Muslim thinkers of medieval Islam, highly respected by both Muslim and non-Muslim scholars alike. His writings are not confined to theology and Sufism, but also extend to include other areas of learning, such as philosophy, Ethics, jurisprudence and gender issues, making him one of the most prolific writers in the history of Islam. Despite the importance of his works, there has been no comprehensive book relaying all of his intellectual achievements. This new survey fills this gap by looking at a large number of his works in a holistic way, unlike many existing books, which deal exclusively with one or two aspects of his work, and by covering topics often neglected in al-Ghazali studies, such as his works on literature and gender issues. The volume also highlights the importance of his work to both modern and Medieval Islamic thought and society. >
