Abstract: Based on the Physics of the Sfifâ', it is shwon that Ibn Sînâ offers many times doc-xographies of all scientific theories regarding a specific issue, e.g. place, or time, known at his time. he not only mentions the doctrines of the ancient greeks, but also of his predecessors in the Islamic world. In this sense, his work is a valuable source of information for an encompassing knowledge of the known scientific doctrines in the Islamic East in the beginnings of the eleventh century.
