The Incoherence of The Incoherence

The Incoherence of the Incoherence (Arabic: تهافت التهافتTahāfut al-Tahāfut) by Andalusian Muslim polymath and philosopher Ibn Rushd (Averroes) (1126–1198) is an important Islamic philosophical treatise, in which the author defends the use of Aristotelian philosophy within Islamic thought.

It was written in the style of a dialogue against Al-Ghazali's claims in The Incoherence of the Philosophers (Tahāfut al-Falasifa), which criticized Islamic Neoplatonic thought. Originally written in Arabic, The Incoherence of the Incoherence was subsequently translated into many other languages. The book is considered Averroes' landmark; in it, he tries to create harmony between faith and philosophy.
