al-Jahiz expounded natural selection by way of survival of the fittest, circa 8th century. He was a brilliant literateur and grammarian as well.
Always wondered what ended the The Golden Age. The Mongolian Invasion is a tidy explanation. I wonder if the reasons are quite that tidy? Ie were there other significant factors? What else was happening in spheres of influence at that time? Seems a bit coincidental that the Muslim Golden age ended just as the European renaissance was about to flower.
Could you suggest something of al Jahiz about Evolution I could read?
