This paper was prepared within the European Research Council's FP7 project Rediscovering Theological Rationalism in the Medieval World of Islam at the Research Unit Intellectual History of the Islamicate World of Freie Universität Berlin. It outlines some material from my PhD thesis on Ibn Kammūna written at Yale University under the direction of Dimitri Gutas. I extend my gratitude to all participants of the 2010 SOAS conference “The Ontology of the Soul in Medieval Arabic Thought” for the lively discussion on a preliminary draft of the paper and to both Ayman Shihadeh and the anonymous reviewer for their invaluable comments on the penultimate draft. For all remaining deficiencies I alone am responsible.
