Working Group

Demarcating Experiential Knowledge and Scientific Knowledge in the Premodern Islamic Context (9th–14th Century CE)

This working group seeks to discover the relationship of experiential knowledge to scientific knowledge in the study of the natural world in the ninth- to fourteenth-century Islamic world. That includes questions about the ways in which experience manifested itself and the groups with which it was associated. Among the branches of science investigated are astrology, medicine, theology, and philosophy.
