On Ibn Rochd (Source; Islamic Philosophy online):
Ibn Rushd (known in medieval Latin as Averroës and in Arabic in full as Abu Al-Walid Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Muhammad Ibn Rushd (b. 1126, Cordoba--d. 1198, Marrakech, Almohad Empire), influential Islamic religious philosopher who integrated Islamic traditions and Greek thought. At the request of the caliph Ibn at-Tufayl he produced a series of summaries and commentaries on most of Aristotle’s works (1162-95) and on Plato’s Republic, which exerted considerable influence for centuries. He wrote the Decisive Treatise on the Agreement Between Religious Law and Philosophy (Fasl), Examination of the Methods of Proof Concerning the Doctrines of Religion (Manahij), and The Incoherence of the Incoherence (Tahafut) at-Tahafut, all in defense of the philosophical study of religion against the theologians (1179-80).
