In 2009, the journal extended its scope to include important papers on scientific modernization from the nineteenth century in the Islamic world. Together with original studies on the history of all these fields, ASP also offers work on the inter-relations between Arabic and Greek, Indian, Chinese, Latin, Byzantine, Syriac and Hebrew sciences and philosophy.

Islamic philosophy is a development in philosophy that is characterised by coming from an Islamic tradition

Islamic philosophy is a development in philosophy that is characterised by coming from an Islamic tradition.
