The history of science is one of knowledge being passed from community to community over thousands of years, and this is the classic account of the most influential of these movements -- how Hellenistic science passed to the Arabs where it took on a new life and led to the development of Arab astronomy and medicine, which flourished in the courts of the Muslim world and later passed on to medieval Europe. Starting with the rise of Hellenism in Asia in the wake of the campaigns of Alexander the Great, O'Leary deals with the Greek legacy of science, philosophy, mathematics, and medicine and follows it as it travels across the Near East propelled by religion, trade, and conquest. Dealing in depth with Christianity as a Hellenizing force, the influence of the Nestorians and the Monophysites, Indian influences by land and sea, and the rise of Buddhism, O'Leary then focuses on the development of science during the Baghdad Khalifate, the translation of Greek scientific material into Arabic, and the effect it had on the history of medicine, science, and historical geography, as well as the history of the Arab world.
Über den Autor:
The late DeLacy O'Leary was a well known Arabist and published many works on the history of the Arab world.
