  3. Nietzsche and Buddhism: A Study in Nihilism and Ironic Affinities.Robert G. Morrison - 1997 - Oxford University Press.
    Morrison offers an illuminating study of two linked traditions that have figured prominently in twentieth-century thought: Buddhism and the philosophy of Nietzsche. Nietzsche admired Buddhism, but saw it as a dangerously nihilistic religion; he forged his own affirmative philosophy in reaction against the nihilism that he feared would overwhelm Europe. Morrison shows that Nietzsche's influential view of Buddhism was mistaken, and that far from being nihilistic, it has notable and perhaps surprising affinities with Nietzsche's own project of the transvaluation of (...)

    Cosmology and Cosmic Order in Islamic Astronomy.Robert G. Morrison - 2019 - Early Science and Medicine 24 (4):340-366.
    This article analyzes how the astronomy of Islamic societies in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries can be understood as cosmological. By studying the Arabic translations of the relevant Greek terms and then the definitions of the medieval Arabic dictionaries, the article finds that Arabic terms did not communicate order in the way implied by the Greek ho kósmos. Yet, astronomers of the period sometimes discussed cosmic order in addition to describing the cosmos. This article finds, too, that a new technical (...)

    Islamic Perspectives on Natural Theology.Robert G. Morrison - 2013 - In J. H. Brooke, F. Watts & R. R. Manning (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of Natural Theology. Oxford Up. pp. 151.
    This chapter examines various Islamic perspectives on natural theology, and briefly outlines the reasons why the philosophy of Ibn Rusdh does not represent a definition of natural theology in Islam. It then discusses varieties of natural theology and Islam; Kalām texts and revelation; al-Ghazālī's criticism of philosophers; Nizām al-Dīn al-Nīsābūrī's views on the reasoned study of nature; natural theology and religious obligations; Sharī'a and natural law; and reactions to Darwin in the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Near East.

    The Solar Model in Joseph Ibn Joseph Ibn nahmias'I Would Like to Thank Bernard R. Goldstein of the University of Pittsburgh and George Saliba of Columbia University for Bringing This Manuscript to My Attention in 1992. I Presented Part of This Paper at the 2002 History of Science Society Conference in Milwaukee, Wi, and Thank Jamil Ragep of the University of Oklahoma for Thoughtful Comments. I Would Also Like to Acknowledge the Time and Care Taken by the Anonymous Referees at Arabic Sciences and Philosophy. Discussions with Albert and Laura Schueller and David Guichard of the Whitman College Department of Mathematics Were Also Beneficial. Any Shortcomings in This Article Are My Responsibility. Light of the World: The Solar Model in Light of the World. [REVIEW]Robert G. Morrison - 2005 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 15 (1):57-108.
    In an influential article, A. I. Sabra identified an intellectual trend from twelfth and thirteenth-century Andalusia which he described as the ‘‘Andalusian revolt against Ptolemaic astronomy.” Philosophers such as Ibn Rushd , Ibn Tufayl , and Maimonides objected to Ptolemy’s theories on philosophic grounds, not because of shortcomings in the theories' predictive accuracy. Sabra showed how al-Bitrūjī's Kitāb al-Hay'a attempted to account for observed planetary motions in a way that met the philosophic standards of those philosophers and others. In Nūr (...)
