    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Ghazālī&amp;rsquo;s &amp;ldquo;The incoherence of the philosophers&amp;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&amp;nbsp;Tahāfut, constituting a commentary tradition that has been neglected by scholars. The first two commentators, Khojazāda (d. 1488) and ʿAlāʾ al-Dīn Ṭūsī (d. 1482), are not line-by-line exegetes of Ghazālī, but rather update the discussions that Ghazālī broached to the level of knowledge available to them. Khojazāda was favored by the Ottomans, but ʿAlāʾ al-Dīn&amp;rsquo;s content, methodology and argumentation style proves to be just as, if not more, interesting for us.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
