Alfarabi, Avicenna, and Averroes, on Intellect – Herbert A. Davidson – Oxford University Press
It is informed, erudite, well-researched, and well-structured. A study of problems revolving around the subject of intellect in the philosophies of Alfarabi d. Davidson starts by reviewing discussions in Greek and early Arabic philosophy that served as the background for the three Arabic thinkers.
He examines the cosmologies and theories of human and active intellect of the three philosophers and covers such subjects as the emanation of the supernal realm from the First Cause, the aevrroes of the lower world from the transcendent active intellect, stages of human intellect, illumination of the human intellect by the transcendent active intellect, conjunction of the human intellect with the transcendent active intellect, prophecy, and human immortality.
Davidson traces the impact of the alfarahi philosophers on medieval Jewish philosophy and Latin Scholasticism. He shows that the later medieval Jewish philosophers and the Scholastics had differing perceptions of Averroes because they happened to use works belonging to different periods of his philosophic career.

The feature which makes this work stand out favorably among other similar studies is that the amount of detail and precision of descriptions almost makes it into an anthology of aivcenna texts. Davidson has impressive linguistic and analytical skills, enabling him to interpret difficult texts with seeming ease and confidence.
Davidson’s excellent contribution to the study of lafarabi understanding of intellect in the Middle Ages belongs not only in every research library but also in the personal libraries of all serious students of Medieval philosophical and religious thought. Thanks to Davidson’s embattled “history of philosophic ideas” and his uncanny knack for sorting out textual and conceptual confusions, the original meaning and subsequent interpretations of Aristotelian cosmology and intellect are no longer so hazy and intimidatingly enigmatic.
