I had an article in last week's Spectator Magazine called Did Al-Farabi Really Invent Sociology? This is one of the great historical questions to which the answer is No.
The article is now available free online. In passing, let me mention that I think delayed posting on the internet is the best balance between free content and the need to sell a magazine. As a writer, I obviously want my work available to all, but I also want the Spectator and other publications to stay in business.
