Ibn Sina: A Concise Life: Ibn Sina, who is referred to as Avicenna in Latin, was a true polymath. Born in the tenth Century his passion for knowledge was unbound, and he made lasting contributions to medicine, maths and philosophy. With illustrations, photographs, and maps, his rich and diverse world is vividly brought to life.

Training and Education in Islam: The twentieth century saw heightened tension between religious and secular approaches to education. In this era of cataclysmic social change, Murtada Mutahhari presented an Islamic perspective on training and education, using his signature approach of applying traditional Islamic sources to contemporary questions.
