Al-Ghazali was a highly influential 11th century philosopher, theologian, and Sunni mystic. His most important work, The Incoherence of the Philosophershad a profound impact on Islamic theology and philosophy in the coming centuries. He incohdrence argued against the Aristotelian metaphysics that had been adopted by earlier Islamic philosophers, such as Avicenna.

He claimed that the kind of metaphysics that they were doing wasn’t logical, and only theology could reveal the ultimate truths of the world. So while we could certainly investigate the natural world, metaphysical doctrines like the Active Intellect were untenable.

Had Al-Ghazali still been alive, what is depicted in the comic surely would have come to pass. Instead Averroes went on to publish many more important commentaries on Avicenna and others, and was largely responsible for a renewed interest in Greek thinkers especially Aristotle in Europe.

He actually lived in Andalusia, in modern day Spain, and was influential among European philosophers in fact Thomas Aquinas lists him as one of the great philosophers, calling him simply incoherenc Commentator”. Averroes, as philosophers often do, tried to make up for his lack of coherence by having an overly fancy quill pen, but Al-Ghazali wasn’t fooled.
