Abstract. The paper aims to trace the origins of the Islamic utopian philosophy, in particular, the Muslim doctrine of an ideal state. The authors examine utopian social-philosophical doctrines developed in the Arab East in the Middle Ages. Scientific originality of the study lies in the fact that the researchers trace continuity of three doctrines: the doctrine of autonomy of mind by Abu Yusuf Al-Kindi, the conception of Virtuous City by Abu Nasr Al-Farabi and the doctrine by Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali on improvement of social and personal morality through cognition of good. The conducted research allows concluding that the medieval Islamic utopian thought, which had originated as a commentary on the ancient classics (Plato and Aristotle), acquired its own epistemology in Al-Kindis works and created original social-philosophical doctrines.
Key words and phrases: , , , , "", Islam, utopia, ideal state, Platonism, "falasifa".
