The Travels of IBN Fudayl Paperback
The Travels of Ibn Fudayl is a satirical tale written in the style of an academic who has translated a medieval manuscript.
It comes complete with foreword, introduction, bibliography and copious footnotes that poke fun at the pretentious world of academia, whilst chronicling Ibn Fudayl's experiences in Al-Andalus.
In particular, how his search for wisdom leads him to meet the philosopher Al-Homsi, the world's most ignorant man.
It is their friendship and love for worthless knowledge that enables Ibn Fudayl to reach the upper echelons of Andalusian society.
