Jewish and Islamic Philosophy by Lenn E. Goodman
Book DescriptionThis book explores the major philosophical issues in the historic interplay of Islamic and Jewish philosophy. The problems considered are issues of abiding philosophical interest: * Freedom and determinism * The nature and meaning of history * The basis of ethical values * The foundations and social implications of friendship * The viability and relevance of the idea of God The approach taken here is distinctive in several ways. The perspective is cross-cultural, rather than parochial, synthetic rather than descriptive. The object is not to find the 'sources' of ideas, as if to credit the philosophical originality of one group or cast aspersions on the philosophical dependency of another, but rather to follow a conversation that takes place across the centuries.

Goodman argues we can respect one another and learn from one another's ways without sharing them or relinquishing our own.
Coming to Mind, Hardback (February 2014)
How should we speak of bodies and souls? Drawing on new and classical understandings of perception, consciousness, memory, agency, and creativity, this book frames a convincing argument for a dynamic and integrated self capable of language, thought, discovery, caring, and love.

This is a new English translation of a classic work of medieval Islamic learning. In this rich allegorical fable the animals pursue a case against humanity. They rebuke and criticise human weakness, deny man's superiority, and make powerful demands for greater justice and respect for animals.
