Abstract: In this article Professor Paul E. Walker grapples with theories of Time in Classical Theology. From this wide lens, he narrows the study down to how Time is presented generally in Muslim thought, and specifically in early Ismaili thought, drawing comparisons between Abu Bakr al-Razi, Abu Hatim al-Razi, Nasir-i Khusraw and Al-Sijistani. The author clearly identifies the roots of Time in Ismaili thought in Aristotle and Plotinus.
