Rational Sciences in Islam:

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

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. Our primary goal is to increase our understanding of how Muslim scholars and the various publics making up Islamic societies explored the world through rational means, and the products and consequences of those explorations.

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.

We heartily invite you to visit the sites of these component projects and learn more about these exciting initiatives and our sponsors and partners.
