The influence of the Platonic theory of forms is to be found in
nearly all periods in the history of Western philosophy. Much less
well known is the fact that in all ages Arabic philosophers also
discussed "Platonic forms" in their written works, although they
had no access to Platos Dialogues. This study analyses how this
conception was given doctrinal content without recourse to Platos
works, and presents the relevant Arabic works in German translation
for the first time. They offer a first insight into a branch of the
reception of Platonism that has not yet been researched, but which
is often clearly influenced by Islam.
