The original Annotated Bibliography on Ibn Sina — covering 1970 to 1989 — was published in 1991 by Leuven University Press, and the First Supplement — covering 1990 to 1994 — was published in 1999 by the Fédération Internationale des Instituts d’Études médiévales. This Second Supplement covers fifteen years of research on Ibn Sina (1995 to 2009) and deals with publications that appeared not only in the West, but also elsewhere in the world.

This Second Supplement opens with a detailed presentation of new editions and/or translations (as well as of reprints of older ones) of Ibn Sıˉnaˉ’s major and minor works and surveys books and papers related to Ibn Sina’s life and works. It extensively deals with studies analyzing and discussing aspects of Ibn Sina’s thought in its different aspects: logic, noetics, linguistics, aesthetics, psychology, politics, ethics, metaphysics, mysticism, natural sciences, astronomy, mathematics, music, and medicine.

This bibliography not only annotates or summarizes each single publication, written in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, or in Arabic or Persian, but it also identifies each publication’s most innovative ideas and assesses its specific contributions in a brief but clear and succinct way. Moreover, it offers references to publications in many other languages, including Turkish, Russian, Uzbek, and Japanese, among others and provides a clear, concise, and comprehensive work-instrument for all future research on Ibn Sina.
