The House of Wisdom A myth-shattering view of the Islamic world's myriad scientific innovations and the role they played in sparking the European Renaissance.
Many of the innovations that we think of as hallmarks of Western science had their roots in the Arab world of the middle ages, a period when much of Western Christendom lay in intellectual darkness. Jim al- Khalili, a leading British-Iraqi physicist, resurrects this lost chapter of history, and given current East-West tensions, his book could not be timelier. With transporting detail, al-Khalili places readers in the hothouses of the Arabic Enlightenment, shows how they led to Europe's cultural awakening, and poses the question: Why did the Islamic world enter its own dark age after such a dazzling flowering?, the house of wisdom, the house of wisdom book, the house of wisdom islam, the house of wisdom jim al khalili, the house of wisdom jonathan lyons, the house of wisdom pdf, the house of wisdom summary, the house of wisdom jonathan lyons pdf, the house of wisdom facts, the house of wisdom lyons
