Within this context the author discusses: firstly, how in practice Arab sociologists consider teaching, research, services and policy matters; secondly, how Arab sociologists the significance of theory, methodology, ideology and classical literature; and thirdly, the reasons why a new generations of sociologists, particularly those who espouse Arabism, Islamism and Marxism, strongly advocate the development Arab sociology. 

The paper concludes with recommendations for Arab sociologists to:(1)  recognize the international unity of the discipline; (2) maintain and expand the dialogue with international sociology; (3) utilize more rigorous research methodology; and (4)  rearrange the priorities of sociologycal inquiries in order to ask questions that are locally considered significant.
