The Place of Human Nature in Ibn-Khaldun's Thinking

Auther : Mahmoud Dhaoudi

The author of this study has not yet encountered any mentionable interest in Ibn Khaldun’s notion of Human Nature among those who have studied Ibn Khaldun’s work. The failure to do so has two significant implications 1) and implicit denial of Ibn Khaldun’s Psychological Knowledge of Human Nature and 2) a Latent denial of Ibn Khaldun’s true encyclopedic great scholarship in The Since of Man without a mere concept, a working notion of Human Nature? Have famous modern social scientists no assumption on Human Nature?
From all this appears to result Ibn Khaldun’s Strong Condemnation of the over Dominic of excessive materialism as well as animalism in human societies and civilizations Unlike the social Darwinists like Herbert Spencer and his Followers, Ibn Khaldun had a non linear vision of human evolution, he believed only in limited human evolution of given civilizations. The great maghrebian sociologist does not also see eye to eye with materialistic and animalistic oriented modern thinkers. Among the later are Freud, Lorenz, skinner etc., who advocate materialism animalism as progressive values while ibn khaldoun was convinced of the negative correlation between such value and civilization’s healthy and steady advancement.
