This is an informative yet aggravating book, and I had a hard time deciding how to rate it. Seyyed Hossein Nasr is a very knowledgeable man with what I consider to be some bizarre views, and here he is constantly at work to force said views upon the reader. I found the size and scope of the book to be ideal, and the balance between analysis and translations of primary texts was perfect (although his selection criteria occasionally baffled me). This is a good text to read along with another (hopefully more sane) introduction to Islamicate science, or one could use the bibliography as a helpful jumping off point: the references are dated but helpful.
Review: Science & Civilization in IslamUser Review - Goodreads
Good overview of Science as it is practised in the Muslim universe. Nasr is adamant in the idea of an Islamic Science.
