Malay scientific thinking in the context of MSS1292 Kitab Tibb

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article analyses Malay scientific thinking based on the contents of the Malay manuscript MSS1292 Kitab Tibb. This analysis aims to investigate whether the Malays possessed the features of scientific thinking. It also serves the purpose of determining whether the Malays had integrated scientific thinking with their spiritual faith. This study adopts a qualitative study methodology through instrument analysis by way of textual and contextual study of main sources. The findings show that the Malays did indeed possess features of scientific thinking. This is proven by MSS1292 Kitab Tibb which reveals the use of logic, as part of the method of thinking. This study also finds that there was integration between science and spiritual faith in MSS1292 Kitab Tibb. This is evident in the method of treatment for a disease through the integration of science and faith.
