Professor Adamson holds a joint appointment with the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. During 2012-13, he will be at King’s College London in the Spring term for a research seminar on Late Ancient Philosophy. He has published on a wide range of figures in Greek and Arabic philosophy, including Aristotle, Plotinus, al-Farabi and other members of the Baghdad School, Avicenna and Averroes. However, he has concentrated especially on the output of the translation circle of al-Kindi, who is usually credited with being the first philosopher in the Islamic tradition. This research includes The Arabic Plotinus: a Philosophical Study of the “Theology of Aristotle and Great Medieval Thinkers: al-Kindi. Professor Adamson is also a co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to Arabic Philosophy, co-edited with Richard Taylor, and Philosophy, Science and Exegesis in Greek, Arabic and Latin Commentaries. He has edited three books for the Warburg Institute, the most recent of which, In the Age of Averroes, will appear soon. Professor Adamson hosts the excellent podcast History of Philosophy…Without Any Gaps.
