Fine. “In the past fifteen years, research into the life, times, and philosophy of Avicenna has witnessed a resurgence among scholars of medieval Islamic intellectual history. This resurgence can be traced in part to the 1988 publication of Dimitri Gutas’s Avicenna and the Aristotelian Tradition in which scholars were treated to an evaluation of work on Avicenna since the millenary celebrations of the 1950s, an assessment of the then current state of research, and a detailed map-in Gutas’s own study of Avicenna’s intellectual inheritance and innovation - of the methodology and goals that would be necessary for further progress.” – David C. Reisman, “A New Standard for Avicenna Studies.” (p. 562). ISBN: 9004085009
