Popular media finally gets around to covering medieval philosophy

I Want a New Left points to an article on Ibn Rushd a.k.a. Averroës. I wrote my M.Phil. thesis on Averroës and originally planned to do my Ph.D. dissertation on him, Ibn Bajjah (Avempace), Ibn Tufail, and Ibn Sina (Avicenna), and how they were influenced by Alexander of Aphrodisias. I still hope to be able to come back to that and write it someday.
