    Perceiving Things in Themselves: Abū L-Barakāt Al-Baġdādī’s Critique of Representationalism.Fedor Benevich - 2020 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 30 (2):229-264.
    What are the proper objects of perception? Two famous responses to this question hold that they are either the images of extramental objects, that is, the way in which they appear to us, or they are the objects themselves. In this paper, I present an analysis of this issue by Abū l-Barakāt al-Baġdādī, a post-Avicennian scholar whose impact on the history of Islamic philosophy has been largely neglected. Abū l-Barakāt argued against the traditional Aristotelian-Avicennian epistemological dualism, which distinguishes between the (...)

    Fire and Heat: Yaḥyā B. ʿadī and Avicenna on the Essentiality of Being Substance or Accident.Fedor Benevich - 2017 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 27 (2):237-267.
    Avicenna's analysis of the definition of substance and accident repeatedly emphasizes two points: one and the same essence cannot be substance in one instance and accident in another; whetherxis extrinsic or intrinsic for an underlying subject,ydoes not tell us anything as to whetherxis substance or not. Both points are development in an argument against certain unnamed people who claimed the opposite. In this article I will show that Avicenna's opponents are to be identified with the mainstream Baghdad Peripatetic School which (...)

    The Priority of Natures Against The Identity of Indiscernibles: Alexander of Aphrodisias, Yaḥyā B. 'Adī, and Avicenna on Genus as Matter.Fedor Benevich - 2019 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 57 (2):205-234.
    A central question in the history of metaphysics concerns the ontological status of such notions as 'redness,' 'humanity,' or 'animality,' which one calls 'universals.' Since one uses these notions to describe objects in the real world, it may seem intuitive that they exist in extramental reality: one says that universals are 'real'. Famously, though, several problems arise from this view. A central problem known both to medieval and contemporary scholars goes as follows: I look at a red rose and recognize (...)

    The Thought Experimental Method: Avicenna's Flying Man Argument.Peter Adamson & Fedor Benevich - 2018 - Journal of the American Philosophical Association 4 (2):147-164.
    No argument from the Arabic philosophical tradition has received more scholarly attention than Avicenna's ‘flying man’ thought experiment, in which a human is created out of thin air and is able to grasp his existence without grasping that he has a body. This paper offers a new interpretation of the version of this thought experiment found at the end of the first chapter of Avicenna's treatment of soul in theHealing. We argue that it needs to be understood in light of (...)

    The Reality of the Non-Existent Object of Thought.Fedor Benevich - 2018 - Oxford Studies in Medieval Philosophy 6 (1).
    One of the most widespread claims combining epistemology and metaphysics in post-Avicennian Islamic philosophy was that every object of thought is real. In Muʿtazilite reading, it was endorsed due to a theory of knowledge which states that knowledge is a connection or relation between the knower and the object known. Avicennists accepted it due to the rule that in a proposition “s is p” if p is something positive s has to be positive and real too. Hence, insofar as one (...)
