Our symposium aims to situate science in its historical and cultural context within Islamic societies. As the history of science in Europe and North America continues to be dominated by studies of 1800 onward, it is particularly important for a commission like CHOSTIS, with a global membership and broad chronological scope, to join the discussion.
The particular areas covered by the panel include geography, medicine, mathematics, the relationship between science and philosophy, transmission of science, and biographies of scientists. This symposium will explore the relationships between medical knowledge and philosophy and astrology, geography and the exact sciences, science and other religious considerations, and the transmission of science.
