     Аl-Faràbi, Abu Nasr (872-950)
Persian Islamic neoplatonist who employed Aristotelian logic in support of his
arguments for the existence of god and used Plato's Republic 
as the model for his own description of civil society in Principles of
Citizens of the Virtuous City.
     Ibn Sina
           Ibn Sina, Abù'Alì al-Husayn (980-1037)           
Persian Islamic philosopher and physician whose Kitab Al-Shifa (
Book of Healing) commented on the philosophy of 
Aristotle. As a leading neoplatonist, Ibn Sina emphasized the causal
necessity that characterizes emanations from the divine, but supposed that
human knowledge can best be achieved by mystical illumination.
                               Neoplatonism                               
Philosophical system developed by Plotinus and others. Nominally derived from 
Plato's metaphysics, neoplatonic philosophy regards the natural world
as a series of emanations from the nature of god. During most of the medieval
period, this system was the most influential version of Plato's thought.
