  "abstract": "<p>Ghaz\u0101l\u012b&rsquo;s &ldquo;The incoherence of the philosophers&rdquo; spurred a counter-commentary by Ibn Rushd, as is well known. Up to ten texts from Ottoman scholars also purport to be commentaries on the&nbsp;Tah\u0101fut, constituting a commentary tradition that has been neglected by scholars. The first two commentators, Khojaz\u0101da (d. 1488) and \u02bfAl\u0101\u02be al-D\u012bn \u1e6c\u016bs\u012b (d. 1482), are not line-by-line exegetes of Ghaz\u0101l\u012b, but rather update the discussions that Ghaz\u0101l\u012b broached to the level of knowledge available to them. Khojaz\u0101da was favored by the Ottomans, but \u02bfAl\u0101\u02be al-D\u012bn&rsquo;s content, methodology and argumentation style proves to be just as, if not more, interesting for us.</p>",
