Finally!Michael Marmura's edition and translation of the Metaphysics side of Avicenna's Healing came in the mail today. After being delayed for about a year. This is quite possibly the single most important publishing event in the field of medieval philosophy in the last ten years. And it's the first time that more than snippets of the work have been available in English. (Of course, you always could read the whole thing in Arabic or in a medieval Latin translation :) .)
