I. Introduction

In this talk I would like to give an idea about the cultural contribution of the Islamic civilization to the West, the Islamic origins of modern science and civilization and the ascendancy of the Islamic science and learning for about 600 years in the world.

Therefore I’ll talk about the beginning of the Islamicization of the West, of the Influence of Muslims on Western philosophy, rationalism, experimental method, sciences, commerce, material life and arts of gracious living.
