Biruni's thoughts are rooted in different approaches to and braches of knowledge. Thus, to understand him, one has to underestand the nature and the foundations of his epistemological, ontological, and humanistic views. Though Biruni focuses on the fate of the natural world and the starting point of his ideas is the description of natural laws and patterns, this end is finally achieved through mental explanation, intuition, and revelation.
