    Ibn Tufayl's Hayy Ibn Yaqzan: A Philosophical Tale eBook: Tufayl, Ibn, Goodman, Lenn Evan, Goodman, Lenn Evan: : Kindle Store/5(23). The Arabic philosophical fable Hayy Ibn Yaqzan is a classic of medieval Islamic philosophy. Ibn Tufayl (d. ), the Andalusian philosopher, tells of a child raised by a doe on an equatorial island who grows up to discover the truth about the world and his own place in it, unaided—but also unimpeded—by society, language, or tradition.

    The medieval Arab book "Hayy ibn Yaqzan" is a long forgotten philosophical novel from the so-called "Golden Age" of Islamic Spain. It was written by the philosopher Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Tufayl (known in the West as Abubacer), who served as an adviser and physician to the Spanish Almohad sultan/5(23). It tells of a child who is nurtured by a gazelle and grows up in total isolation from humans. In seven phases of seven years each, solely by the exercise of his faculties, Hayy goes through all the gradations of knowledge. The story of Hayy Ibn Yaqzan is also similar to the later story of Mowgli in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.
