Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Theodor H. Gaster
It is the purpose of this dissertation to contribute in a modest way to this primary work of translation as well as to the equally important task of philosophic analysis. The major part of the present work consists of a translation of al-Kindi's "Treatise on First Philosophy" which is, as far as we know, the first Metaphysics written by a Muslim philosopher.
