He was the most renowned philosopher of medieval Islam and the most influential name in medicine from to His medical masterpiece was the Canon of Medicine.

    One also sees ibn Sina's influence on St. Bonaventure and St. Thomas. St. Thomas criticized ibn Sina indirectly while making a penetrating study of ibn Rushd (Averroes). In his book entitled Contra Averroistas, he examined all the interpretations of Aristotle made by ibn Rushd, and he profited by the ideas of Albert the Great who was his master. The translation of the Arabic versions of the Aristotelian corpus, the commentaries, and the abridgments produced a cultural turning point in the intellectual history of the Western world. We also know that the serious study of Aristotle in the time of Scholasticism begins with Albertus Magnus () who used Ibn Sînâ’s commentaries.

      His encyclopedic work, which had a great influence in both East and West, was Al-Qanun fi al-Tibb (The Canon of Medicine) – a work of one million words which summarizes Arabic, Greek, Hindu and Persian medicine until his time. Translated into Latin in the 12th century by Gerard of Cremona under the name The Canon of Medicine of Avicenna, it. ‘Ibn Sina’s renown brought him the title ‘the leading eminent scholar’ (al-Shayk al Ra’is).Discuss the significance of his philosophical ideas with special focus on his distinction between his essence and existence, and its role in his proof for God as the necessary Sina, or Avicenna, born AD, was a leading polymath of many subjects; many of his theories are still.

Avicenna is one of the world's most famous medics and many have named him "the father of modern medicine" - an honor he shares with Hippocrates, the Greek doctor that penned the Hippocratic oath.

As a pioneer and essential figure in Arabic culture in the Islamic Golden Age, Ibn Sina has been forever immortalized in Noah Gordon's "The Physician" novel and in the movie, where Ben Kingsley gives. In Arabic, it means "son of". for example: ibn Abbas means: the son of Abbas.

The first Christian thinkers to be influenced by Ibn Sina was Gundisalivus, the head of the Translation Bureau in Spain. He wrote his book: The Soul in which he started with Ibn Sina and ended with Augustinus.
