Al-Ghazali's Theory of Causality
Gazali'nin Nedensellik Teorisi

It has been widely accepted that the thought of al-Ghazali was broadly in line with the Ash'rite approach to theology. Thus many thinkers agree that al-Gazali rejected causality. According to Abrahamov, this is misconception, and there are many instances where Ghazali produces arguments and opinions which are not compatible with Ash'arism. The widely view held that al-Ghazali took a stand totally opposed to causality can be modified through a careful examination on al-Ghazali's Works

Gazali'nin Eş'arî kelam anlayışıyla genel olarak aynı çizgide olduğu büyük kesimler tarafından kabul görmektedir. Bundan ötürü birçok düşünür onun nedenselliği reddetti-ği hususunda hemfikirdir. B. Abra-hamov'a göre, bu yanlış bir kanıdır ve onun eserlerinde Eş'ariyye ile uyuşmayan fikir ve argümanları barındıran pek çok örnek vardır.  Gazali'nin nedenselliğe tamamen karşı olduğu görüşü onun eserleri-nin dikkatli bir incelemesi netice-sinde değişebilecektir.
