Islamic Philosophy Online A truly massive collection of Islamic Philosophy in English. I won’t even pretend that I’ve read or will read any of this. Far too highbrow for me; I’m more a bhakti kind of guy. But if kalam is your thing, this is the place for you.

I’d learn to play an instrument if I could be an Intellectual Muslim Guerilla. Sadly, after September 11, McAuliffe retired the band. But he’s still making music, and his IMG collection is still available. Check […]
