Was there communication between al-Farabi and Moses Maimonides?
I am teaching interfaith to youths, teachers and students in Pakistan and I need the detail of the communication between Al-Farabi and Moses Maimonides on the metaphysical discourse?
Unfortunately Maimonides lived 185 years after the death of al-Farabi so there was no discourse between the two.
Not wrong as you seem to perceive but she draws a few shaky coslnuniocs and makes a few close to definitive statements that are not so close to definitive. Never rely on one author. KA uses Document Hypothesis in her book and I brought up the example of Abram/Abraham being mentioned by at least 2 contributors of the bible (Yawhist and Priestly) and these accounts do not necessarily match up. She draws a conclusion based on a later contributor and seems to ignore the older text 1
