HISTORY 43S: Science and Medicine in Islam: Perceptions of Cosmos and the Body, 700-1700

What makes a certain kind of knowledge "Islamic"? Is Islam inherently against science and progress? What role did Islamic science play between ancient Greek science and the "Scientific Revolution"? Starting with the emergence of Islam throughout the "Classical period" and later Ottoman and Safavid Empires, this course explores the relationship between religion and science, and the circulation of knowledge. It concludes by analyzing contemporary Muslims' discussions of evolutionary theories and the role of Western civilization in the Islamic world. Priority given to history majors and minors.
