Académie Tunisienne des sciences‚ des lettres et des arts Beït Al-Hikma, Carthage Hannibal Tunisia



« Islam has its own golden history almost in every sector of knowledge. Muslim scholars from the past developed ideas and theories from many areas of knowledge. The key time periods in which one can capture the growth and descent of the Islamic sciences are,between the 8th and 9th centuries, the age of transformation of ancient texts, Greek, Chinese, Indian etc. Then came the era of original thinking and influences of the 9th and 11th centuries. This was shadowed by the weakening in intellectual and systematic thoughts until the 17th century. It was the Muslims who well looked-after the knowledge of ancient times, expanded upon it, and finally, passed it on to Europe. » ​M.A Afridi

This workshop aims to shed light on researches that have been carried out by the Muslim scholars. It is also hoped that, by remembering all those Muslim scientists and their contributions, scholars from contemporary societies will be inspired.
