Physicians, Scientists, and Mathematicians of the Islamic World

The Islamic Golden Age, a period stretching from the ninth to twelfth centuries CE, was characterized by an extraordinary flowering in the fields of philosophy, mathematics, and science. Everything from the decimal system and algebra to hygiene and the containment of infectious diseases to logic, physics, and astronomy were significantly advanced by the leading thinkers of this incredibly rich and fertile era. Each of these towering giants, upon whose shoulders we stand, was a polymath, accomplished in numerous fields of endeavor and inquiry. And each led a fascinating life of the mind that transformed the world around him and continues to exert an influence upon our own modern world.
