Aristote Et Plotin Dans La Philosophie Arabe

Aristote Et Plotin Dans La Philosophie Arabe - Michel Fattal (Quite mediocre. The author is a specialist in Arabic Neoplatonism, and has published what is a collection of minor articles that were originally presented as conference papers. The first two essays deal with problems in Aristotle's de Anima, and are incompetent. My review will appear on-line fairly soon.)

A collection of minor papers on the Aristotelian and Neoplatonic tradition in al-Farabi and other Arabic writers... by a moderately competent scholar. These papers, which originated in conference papers, have already been published in Italian and/or Polish. Now they appear for the first time in French.

I'm really not sure why he has a wikipedia page... and I don't. But such is life....
