Greetings and welcome to the history of Muslim Philosophy book. This is a wonderful book that was the work of many brilliant scholars. The book is almost 2000 pages. We are proud to be able to present you with this book online. We would like to present it to you in html text format in order that it may be searchable. However our resources are meager and we are reaching out to you our dear readers if you are interested in proofreading of the text. Thus far we have up to chapter 15 (and the article on al-Ghazali) done by kind volunteers. If you would like to join our effort please let me know by e-mail.
