A Study in the Philosophic Foundation of the Science of Culture

 This work examines the philosophic foundation and principles of Ibn Khaldun's new science of culture, to show that an adequate understanding of his contribution to the study of the various aspects of human society requires an understanding of his all-comprehensive approach to sociology.
Have our historical and cultural sciences made philosophy superfluous, or are they themselves, on the contrary, in dire need of a philosophical foundation? This book attempts to clarify this problem through the study of perhaps the only great thinker who considered the problems of history and culture, and founded a special science to deal with them, based on the philosophy of Plato and Aristotle and their Muslim followers. This is the first study of
Ibn Khaldun in which is not an apology either for the modern social sciences of for the ‘modern character of Ibn Khaldun’s thought, but a thoroughgoing analysis and interpretation of his text.  Ibn Khaldun founded a special science to deal with the problem of history and culture based on the philosophies of Plato, Aristotle and their Muslim followers.

Abd al-Rahman Ibn Mohammad is generally known as Ibn Khaldun after a remote ancestor. He came from a family of scholars and politicians and he intended to live up to both expectations. He would succeed in the field of Scholarship much more so than in any other field.His parents, originally Yemenite Arabs, had settled in Spain, but after the fall of Seville, had migrated to Tunisia. He was born in Tunisia in 732 AH., where he received his early education

Ibn Khaldun's influence on the subject of history, philosophy of history, sociology, political science and education has remained paramount down to our times. He is also recognized as the leader in the art of autobiography, a renovator in the fields of education and educational psychology and in Arabic writing stylistics.
