  • Abū ʿAlī al-Ḥusayn ibn ʿAbd Allāh ibn Al-Hasan ibn Ali ibn Sīnā; circa 980 – June 1037, more commonly known as Ibn Sīnā and, in Latinised form, Avicenna, was a Persian polymath who is regarded as one of the most significant thinkers and writers of the Islamic Golden Age. He is known to have written around 450 works across a wide range of subjects, of which around 240 have survived, including 150 on philosophy and 40 on medicine. His most famous works are The Book of Healing – a vast philosophical and scientific encyclopedia – and The Canon of Medicine, an overview of all aspects of medicine that became a standard medical text at many medieval universities and remained in use as late as 1650. As well as philosophy and medicine, Avicenna's corpus also includes writings on astronomy, alchemy, geography and geology, psychology, Islamic theology, logic, mathematics, physics and poetry.
