Averroes is an influential Islamic philosopher who was born in modern day Spain on April 14, 1126, and died in Marrakesh, Morocco at the age of 72.
Averroes's works cover many subjects, including early Islamic philosophy to Arabic grammar. It is said that he wrote at least 67 original pieces of work on medicine, law, grammar, theology and philosophy. His an important piece of work for the Islamic religion is "The Incoherence of the Incoherence," in which he presented how the writings of Avicenna was self-contradictory.
The most well-known work is Averroes' commentaries on Aristotle's work, which took almost 30 years to complete. He is known as "The Commentator" to Aristotle's writing. Although he has done much in his lifetime to influence the Islamic philosophy, it was not until modern day that his work had a significant impact.
