While European science slept through the “Dark Ages,” intellectual developments in the Arab/Islamic world transformed scientific thought, creating the foundation for modern empirical science and the scientific method. Dr. Saliba, author of Islamic Science and the Making of the European Renaissance (2007) among other books, will discuss how these developments ultimately led to significant advances in pharmacology and medicine.

Listen to Dr. Saliba interviewed on WAMC on Thursday, April 5 at 9:45 am on the Roundtable.
