Succession and Correlation of Ancient Greek
IX-XII Centuries Central Asian and XIV-XVI Centuries European Weltanschauung

The paper deals with issues concerning IX-XII centuries Central Asian scholars’ contribution to succession and correlation of Weltanschauung (philosophical world outlook) in the Middle Ages and Renaissance Europe in the light of the ancient Greek philosophical heritage. It is stated that each epoch had its own peculiar viewpoint, dependent on the level of knowledge and character of civilization and historical experience of the nation. The purpose of this paper is to discuss contribution ways of IX-XII centuries Central Asian philosophy to further development of Medieval and Renaissance Weltanschauung in Europe. The paper also tries to ground that both Central Asian and European philosophical complexes were inspired mostly and primarily by ancient Greek philosophy as part and parcel of the history of world philosophy. An attempt is made to show that the Middle Ages and Renaissance philosophy of Europe was inspired, first of all, greatly by rational philosophical ideas of Al-Farabi and Avicenna. In this article the author conveys his understanding on this complex phenomenon.
