Abstract

“I am sure that high-minded figures such as Ibn Rushds, Ibn Sina, Imam Ghazali, and Farabi, who are the pride of all the Islamic world, will present with their luminous brains in our nation’s ulama class.” Gazi Pasha, Speech at the Konya Sultani School, 22 March 1923 Although our Reverend İsmail Hakkı Aydın is a specialist in the field of Neurosurgery, he is the representative of versatile medical people living in our age, such as the Turkish medical man born in Bukhara (980-1037), who is one of the most distinguished of our founding 20 thinkers (1). “Avicenna went to systematize the knowledge in medicine and astronomy. The systemizers were perhaps too successful in this way. After an extremely comprehensive professional handbook was written, as Ibni Sina compiled, there was not much research left for a medical doctor to do. “ (William H. McNeill: World History, p.383, Image Bookstore, September 2003, Ankara)
