The third chapter presents biographical studies of Avicennas students Bahmanyar and Ibn Zayla, and his colleague Ab? l-Q?sim al-Kirm?n?, in order to develop the historical and intellectual contexts of these philosophical discussions. The fourth chapter develops theories for the dating and original sequence of the individual letters on the basis of textual evidence.
