    Ahmed, Asad Q., 1977-
    Oakland, California : University of California Press, [2022]

    "Palimpsests of Themselves is an intervention in current discussions about the fate of philosophy in postclassical Islamic intellectual history. It takes up the most advanced logic textbook of Muslim South Asia, The Ladder of the Sciences, as a case study and engages its legacy in three ways.
