Averroes works on philosophy and science

Abu al-Walid Muhammad ibn Rushd (Latin: Averroes 1126-98) integrated Islamic traditions and Greek thought. Averroes is important figure in the history of Islamic intellectual and religious philosophy, who also influenced Western philosophy and Christian theology by inspiring the thirteenth-century movement called Averroism.

Aristotle who lived between 384–322 BC, states that a hidden force causes and determines the motions of matter. Then Averroes states that Aristotle’s force is composed of a primary and secondary force.
From Plato, Averroes adopted the analogy between a well-administered state and a healthy and sound soul.

Some of the most important philosophical works by Averroes or the Commentator, as he as called in the Middle Ages, were translated into Latin.

After Averroes’ death, his philosophy, or at least certain components in his variegated intellectual production, exercised a remarkable influence on the Latin West. Jewish philosopher began to translate Averroes’ work into early in the thirteen century.
