From operational definition to operational thinking ; Towards a paradigm for indigenization of sociology in the Arab world

Auther : Mohammed Asaad Nezami

Indigenization , and Islamiztion , aslamah , are two currents which are sweeping the field s of thought , and sociology in particular, in the present –day Arab world. though  overlapping in their objectives and  sharing many of the same fads and foibles , each of two  movements has its own history, its own existential bases and its own epistemological assumptions. This paper is concerned with the first, the indigenization movement .drawing its raison from the many flaws attributed to traditional sociology in the Arab world , the movement has been in vogue for at least twenty years . yet, after many efforts and much talk about ta,sil, it is generally agreed ;a) that it has had no tangible result ,and b) that no satisfactory answer has yet been given to the question ; ( Why has it nit been successful?) . this paper argues that both (A) and (B) above are the results of one and the same underlying cause, namely , misconception of the main problem- the ills of Arabic sociology – which has a theoretical dimension and methodological one. The first is exemplified by a commonly committed fallacy of misplaced emphasis : the faddish blaming the low quality and flaws of the sociology and sociological literature in the Arab world on the methods of western sociology –and not on the incorrect use of those methods by the producers of that sociology , the Arab sociologists themselves .
