Example text

For, in any cosmological argument, the manner in which the existence of God is proved orients not only the conception of the divine but also the conception of the world, as the springboard to the divine. I bn Sina's dichotomy between necessary and contingent existence, I lis assumption that the contingent requires a cause since there is no logical contradiction in its non-existence, and his'reliance on the kalam idea of a determinant of existence over non-existence, all bespeak his rationalism as clearly as his reliance on the assumption ' I his exists' bespeaks his realism.

The schematism of emanation vividly revealed that the bond between the Forms and nature is no mere logical relation of class membership but a dynamic nexus. It gave a concrete and energizing content to the Aristotelian idea of God as the first mover, since the attraction of all beings tor perfection is their very essence, derived ultimately from the emanative goodness of the One. So the purposiveness Aristotle discovered in God's moving all things as subjects drawn to an end is now clearly linked to the yearning of the Intelligences that guide the spheres.

Ibn Sina continued trying to treat himself with enemas. Hoping to "break the wind of the colic," the philosopher ordered a small a m o u n t of celery seed added to his enema, but his physician overdosed him, either intentionally or by accident, aggravating his ulcer. A slave similarly overdosed h i m w i t h mithridate, an electuary of opium that he was taking for his seizures. According to Juzjani, this was done because the slave was stealing from the master's coffers and hoped to avoid detection.
