"Otherwise well-respected scholars like Ernest Renan and Paul Tannery excluded even the possibility of an Arabic contribution to science," says Rashed, a former fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, professor emeritus at the University of Paris and editor of the three-volume Encyclopedia of the History of Arabic Science.

Science vs Scientism: Question of Cultural Space | STEP - Science, Technology, and Education in Pakistan

www.nextstepforward.net [cached]

Roshdi Rashed, an outstanding contemporary historian of Arabic science based in Paris, has amply demonstrated that, for example, Islamic religious disciplines have played a fundamental role in the development of Islam's natural scientific tradition. These disciplines have been crucial even in creating conditions - intellectual, cultural and linguistic - leading to the large-scale translation of Greek works into Arabic, a phenomenon of massive importance not only in Islam but in world civilization. Recently, Rashed has shown in the case of Ibn Sina, a "double movement" between metaphysics and mathematics, a phenomenon embodied in the exchange between combinatorial analysis and ontological doctrines.
