Al-Ghazali's View on Causality (Article)
Title: Al-Ghazali's View on Causality
Author: Aladdin M. Yaqub
Abstract: This article will be published as part of an anthology that deals with a type of causal theories that are called "Occasionalism" in the Islamic tradition and in the Western tradition. My article argues that al-Ghazali held an occasionalist view of causality, which is contrary to the received view in Western scholarship of al-Ghazali. Al-Ghazali's occasionalism sees God as the universal and direct cause of all things.

Ibn Sina's Causal Necessity and al-Ghazali's Occasionalism (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Ibn Sina's Causal Necessity and al-Ghazali's Occasionalism
Author: Aladdin M. Yaqub
Abstract: My presentation concerns the causal theories of Ibn Sina and al-Ghazali. It is widely held that Ibn Sina believed in (and argued for) the necessity of natural causality, and that al-Ghazali rejected this causal necessity but allowed for the existence of natural causality. I argued that, contrary to this received view, al-Ghazali accepted Ibn Sina's argument for causal necessity, and accordingly rejected completely natural causality.
