The human sciences in our society are suffering from lack of creativity and theorizing. So the necessity of the fundamental evolution in these sciences has become a pervasive demand in our society. Such an evolution needs a method and this method must be created or adopted from the existing patterns. Avicenna's method facing the other sciences in general and specifically what he did with Greek philosophy can be used as a perfect pattern for such evolution. He, facing with Greek philosophy, by avoiding any eliminating approach in several stages and in a purely systematic way, took a very active and creative viewpoint. Avicenna with his critical and yet creative approach, managed to change Greek philosophy in such a way that he could adapt it in some extent with Islamic teachings. The output of his method not only was not strange to Medieval philosophers but also many of them did not hesitate to use his achievements in different philosophical issues. His method goes through three different steps: exact understanding, fundamental criticism and foundational evolution. He takes these steps in a fully methodic manner. The three dimensions of his method are semantic analysis, paying attention to different aspects of a philosophical issues and what we may call it analysis and synthesis.
