Ab Al al-usayn ibn Abd Allh ibn Sn ( c. 980 1037), commonly known as Ibn Sn or by his Latinized name Avicenna, was a Persian polymath, who wrote almost 450 treatises on a wide range of subjects, of which around 240 have survived. In particular, 150 of his surviving treatises concentrate on philosophy and 40 of them concentrate on medicine.
His most famous works are The Book of Healing, a vast philosophical and scientific encyclopaedia, and The Canon of Medicine,[9] which was a standard medical text at many medieval universities. The Canon of Medicine was used as a text-book in the universities of Montpellier and Leuven as late as 1650.[Ibn Sn's Canon of Medicine provides a complete system of medicine according to the principles of Galen (and Hippocrates)

One of the most famous and important Muslim scientist, known as Ibn Sina or Avicenna. He was a Persian scientist and philosopher who wrote about 450 articles about many different subjects. His most significant works are in the fields of philosophy, science and medicine. His first famous book is The Book of Healing, which is a comprehensive work about science and philosophy. Even though the name of the book suggests that it is related to medical field, it is actually related to the healing of the soul. The book consists of four parts; namely, logic, natural sciences, mathematics and metaphysics. The book itself was influenced by famous Greek philosophers and Muslim scientists such as, Ptolemy, Aristotle, Al-Farabi and Al-Kindi.
