The suggested book for Muslim Philosophy is "History of Muslim Philosophy" -- by M.M. Shrif.. This is very heavy multi volume book...

For Alama Iqbal, you should consult original "Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam".

Similarly the main aspects of Western Philosophy syllabus are mostly covered in "History of Philosophy" -- compiled by Radha Krishin .. (former Indian President) ... this is single volume .. but heavy book..


You can consult these books... but for the purpose of exam... the Urdu books, which I suggested through PMs would prove better..

First of all these Urdu books are not substandard books... secondly all the syllabus is covered in the selected sections of all these books.. Thirdly may be you even not able to fully read the HEAVY English books... Radha Kirishin's book is difficult to read... Many otherwise just simple concepts have been presented in undue complicated manner in this book..

Complete MM Shrif's book is available online also... I think Muhammad Kazim's book (he was former GM WAPDA) "Muslim Fiker-o-Falsafa -- Ehd ba Ehd" is an excellent urdu summery of M.M. Shrif's book.

You can familiarize yourself with the English terminology of Philosophy just by consulting philosophy related articles of Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia and www.wikipedia.com


All the syllabus however is well covered in those urdu books...


Regards!

Again thank you so much. Telling you the truth, I have not opted for PHILOSOPHY in my optionals. I have asked you the books regarding CSS because I'm keen to know philosophy the way it's taught to philosophy students. I mean like PHYSICS, we study in MATRIC, FSc, bachelors etc, we know how to study it. That's why I asked for the exams, otherwise PHILOSOPHY is not in my optionals, so kindly suggest me BOOKS BY ENGLISH AUTHORS for PHILOSOPHY(preferably FOREIGN AUTHORS) who give a good detailed of basics of philosophy, its modern trends etc.

Regarding philosophy, I am quoting an itneresting line you ll like. I read this line in "SOPHIE'S WORLD" by Jostein Gaader:-
"Philosophy is something that can't be learnt, but perhaps you can learn to think philosophically."

Would be thankful to you so much!
God bless.

"SOPHIE'S WORLD" is actually English Translation of original Novegian book "SOPHIE'S VERDEN".. by Jostein Garder..

This novel is excellent starting point for the study of philosophy.

Philosophy books can be broadly classified in two main categories.. (i) Books that intent to present new points of views/ new philosopies etc.. like books witten by such writers/ philosophers as Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Ibn-e-Sina, John Locke, Devid Hume, Barkeley, Heiddeger, Sartre, Hegel, Marx, William James, etc. etc.. and (ii) Books that intent to introduce, in summerized way, the works of above mentioned original philosophers... Bertrend Russell, Will Durant, W.T. Steas etc. are good writers in this category.. though Russell often gives his personal points of views/ opinions etc. also. You can include M.M. Sharif's "History of Muslim Philosophy" and Radha Kirishin's "History of Philosophy" as well as all those Urdu books... also in this second category.

Academic philosophy is concerned with second type of books only.

www.wikipedia.com offers information about latest trends in philosophical thought..

You can see my own under-construction online webpage: http://khuram.wordpress.com/about/
