Along with the works of Averroes and Mai­monides, we will be reading this article by one of the most important scholars in the field of Mai­monidean studies:

  • Stern, Josef. “The Mai­monidean Parable, the Arabic Poetics, and the Garden of Eden.” Midwest Studies in Phi­losophy 33 (2009): 209–247.

Please focus in par­ticular on con­ceptual dis­tinc­tions, and the spe­cific question of how Arabic and Muslim thought received and com­mented the corpus of Aris­totle’s works, in what order, and the spe­cific role played by logic and dialectic. You can also refer to my short article about the Aris­toteles Latinus.
