Aug 05, 2022 · Al-Ghazali is the originator of an influential philosophical methodology.

In the Western tradition, this is the first formal philosophical method – it is the first philosophical method named as such.
Al-Ghazali essentially formulates two main arguments for what he views as a sacrilegious thought process. Central to the Aristotelian approach is the concept that motion will always precede motion, or in other words, a force will always create another force, and therefore for a force to be created, another force must act upon that force.
