Al-Kindi Guest Book.
first of all I should thank you for the great effort you have done and you are still doing for the construction of this valuable site. As a student of philosophy, particularly interested in Islamic philosophy and getting direct access to its tradition, I think that your site is the most interesting one, though I think, however, that the wonderfully prolific production of Muslim philosophers is above recension. Thank you once again for your service. Before finishing your communication, I want to draw your attention to another website, constructed in Emirates, which furnishes, among others, some valuable sources of Muslim philosophy. It may be useful for your project. The site is entitled "www.alwaraq.com "
I have used alwarq since it first started. I still use it. for smaller works. It just takes too long to copy books out and I can not link directly to a book. There is also an excellent site that I just found out about it recently http://saaid.net/book/index.php It has many of the books ready for download. Except that it does not have any philosophy books, but the history books are important too for my research.
I am a teacher of the history of political philosophy, and devote parts of my courses to such Islamic philosophers as al-Farabi, Avicenna, and Averroes. I appreciate the opportunity to direct my students to your journal so they may read informed, competent treatments of themes in Islamic philosophy. The articles in your first issue are all clear and authoritative. You are to be commended for making these resources available to persons in the West who seek to understand Islam in an accurate and informed way.
Thank you and please do so.
I wanted to thank you for this very helpful site. I hope it continues to grow.
