5. Science and philosophy Abstract The word ‘ambivalence’ best captures the mood of the transformations in popular and applied sciences of the 15th and 16th centuries.

2. Reason and revelation Abstract Organon. Logic was an indispensable instrument for doing philosophy, eagerly adopted by Al-Kindī and other adherents of falsafa . Others, like Ibn Taymiyya, criticized the discipline of logic.

The three Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, agree in recognizing a single God who is the source for the existence of all other things, and who has revealed His will to us through a line of prophets.

This Postscript looks at the overall picture of the development of Indian philosophical thought from classical times to the present day. Much of the current knowledge of the chronology of Indian philosophical development has been researched by pioneer scholars since the 19th century.
