Logic in the Islamic Legacy: a General Overview

The Decline

They is as yet so little explored of the logical activity in the post 1400s to the invasions of the Western powers. The first and most dangerous pitfall facing the historian is the assumption that there was a decline in logical studies in the realms under Muslim control that corresponds with the sixteenth century decline of the subject in early modern Europe. It is tempting to make this assumption but it needs to be examined and relevant texts must be edited and studied.
