Having published extensively on the metaphysic of Arabic philosopher Ibn Sina (980-1037 AD) and its reception in the Latin Middle Ages, Bertolacci (philosophy, U. of Cologne) here explains how his work was instrumental not only in transmitting Aristotle's Metaphysics to the Latin West, but also, by replacing it with an original treatment of metaphysics, allowed the field to develop autonomously throughout the Middle Ages.
