This work examines the role of God in medieval Islamic philosophy and theology in a new and exciting way. Renouncing the traditional chronological method of considering Islamic philosophy, Netton uses modern literary modes of criticism derived from structuralism, post-structuralism and semiotics. The author focuses on major Islamic and Arab thinkers of the Middle Ages, from Al-Kindi to Ibn al-Arabi, to study the nature, function, role, and development of their God, and relates the views of each to the textual and intellectual history of which he is a product. In the process, the author traces the development of the Neoplatonic God out of the Qur’anic God.
