Islamic Philosophers or Philosophers of Islam?

 

What is the difference?

 

There are many Muslims who have become philosophers, but does that formalised framework of thinking represent Islam itself? The answer is often a resounding no. Often Muslim philosophers have taken ideas from outside of Islam, and then try to incorporate them at a later date. Philosophers of Islam will start with a authentic Islamic position and then extrapolate its effects on the world around them.
