Abstract: 

In respect to its contents, al-Farabi's Kitab at-jam’ bayn ra’yay al-hakimayn aflatun al-ilahi wa-Aristutalis (On the Agreement between Plato and Aristotle) is very different from his other works and from those of other Muslim philosophers as well. The exact study of this book can help us obtain a vast prospect on al-farabi's philosophy. It is not possible to achieve this goal, unless we try to explain the relation of Uthulugia (Theologia Aristotelis), which was ascribed to Aristotle in the middle Ages, and al-Farabi’s Kitab al-jam, In today’s Islamic philosophical studies, which are dominated by an orientalist approach, al-Farabi’s Kitab al-jam’is recognized as the product of a pseudonymous work, Theology of Aristotle. However, when we came to know that Theology of Aristotle does not play a basic role in authorship of Kitab al-jam, then we may raise an important question. Why did Al-Farabi write the Kitab al-Jam'?
