Ibn Sina was a tenth century Muslim scientist who had made major contributions in many diverse areas - from Medicine, Psychology and Pharmacology to Geology, Astronomy,Physics, Chemistry and Philosophy ... a true polymath! The lunar crater Avicenna and the mountain peak Ibn Sina Peak are named in his honor.

This is the first post in the series where highlights of major contributions of individual scientists are provided. I'm thankful to Tricia who had shown interest and suggested that details should also be provided.

The following contributions are only the ones that Historians have been able to find from Ibn Sina's 240 surviving books out of a total of 450 books written by him. To find more about the causes of destruction of many great works please read the post 'Pubic Libraries in the Medieval Islamic World ' .

He was a sage person during the golden age of Muslims. When you heard about a man who is considered to be the father of modern medicine you imagine the man would be European or an imminent American. But you get baffled when you see that this wonderful man is originated from the Muslims who are now left behind in every sector of knowledge and technology. 1000 thousands year back when Ibn Sina lived Muslims society was the most advanced society of the world in every sectors including science, technology, power and military.
