The Genesis of Arabic Logical Activities: From Syriac Rhetoric and Jewish Hermeneutics to al-Safi‘y’s Logical Technique

Issue: 22 (The twenty second issue)
This paper tries to outline a history of development of informal
logic in Semitic languages and especially in Arabic. It tries to explain how
the first definite formulation of rules of this logic appeared at al-Šafi‘y’s
Risāla, a work on ’uswl āl-fiqh or methodology of law. It attempts also to
provide new theories and hypotheses about the translation movement in the
Arabic and Islamic medieval world.
