About The Book

Islam & Natural Philosophy: Principles of Daqiq al-Kalam presents the works of theologians regarding Natural Philosophy including their views on space, time, motion, matter and the rest of the natural world.

These topics, called “Daqīq al-Kalam” complement the other part of kalām regarding divinity (Ilahiyat), called “Jalil al-Kalām”. The novel contribution of Altaie is his discovery that the scholars based their arguments on five basic principles:

  • Temporality
  • Atomism
  • Continual re-creation
  • Contingency and Indeterminacy of the world
  • Integrity of space and time
