An Initiative for the Study of Philosophy and the Mathematical Sciences in Islam

Project Leaders:

Prof. F. Jamil Ragep: Scientific Traditions in Islamic Societies (STIS)

Centered at McGill University, the project to study the rational sciences in Islam will investigate the philosophical, scientific, and theological traditions of Islam in a holistic manner.

This complex project is made up of three components: the Islamic Scientific Manuscripts Initiative (ISMI), the Post-classical Islamic Philosophy Database Initiative (PIPDI), and Scientific Traditions in Islamic Societies (STIS) project.
