Arabic science was probably the most advanced science in the world in the period between the eighth and fourteenth centuries. With the rapid expansion of Islam, Arabic scientists interacted across the world from Central Asia and India to Spain and North Africa.

Along with philosophy, the Arab did much to develop the idea of science and to clarify and elaborate its method. However, this book outlines and elucidates number of the Arabs' contribution to the eventual rise of science.
