Inhaltsangabe: Recounting what is known of ?unayn ibn Is?aq s background, this article suggests that he was among the first Christians whose Arabic writings were taken seriously among Muslim scholars. Many of his own ideas, however, have been overlooked in the scholarship on him. With a focus on the Kitab Adab al-falasifah, a book of aphorisms attributed to ?unayn ibn Is?aq, some of the important aspects of the Kitab are laid out, particularly those dealing with religion and the pursuit of philosophy. In the Baghdad of the generation following ?unayn ibn Is?aq such works as his were considered the grounds for the humaneness demanded by philosophy of the period. Although putatively translators, scholars such as ?unayn ibn Is?aq opened the way for philosophical dialogue between Muslims and Christians of Orthodox churches on precepts, often based on Aristotle, they could agree would lead to wisdom and a humane society.
