Ibn Sina’s Remarks and Admonitions: Physics and Metaphysics – Book Sample

ANALYSIS OF THE TEXT

Our purpose now is to give a clear outline of the major ideas in the first part of lsharat wat-Tanbfhat. No defense or refutation of any of these ideas will be given. Neither time nor space permits that. So let us attempt a brief exposition of Ibn Sina’s views in the simplest language possible. For this purpose we will draw upon much material from his other works. in order to understand and pull together his logical system.

Conception is the grasping of an object without any kind of judgment – it is this grasped object which we call “concept. Concepts are either simple, single or composite. A simple concept is one in which there are no parts, such as the concept “God” -“God”, according to Ibn Sina, is a concept that represents a simple nature. A single concept is one that may or may not have parts, but was it to have parts, these parts could not stand alone as long as they are parts of this concept. A simple concept is a single one, but the converse is not true. Examples of a single concept are: “human being,” “triangle” and “angel.” Finally, a composite concept is one in which there is at least one single concept as a part of it. This is exemplified by the concept “mortal rational animal,”
