Ibn Khaldûn : penseur de la société comme 'asabiyya
|Advisor:||Parizeau, Marie-Hélène; Kash, Soheil|
|Abstract:||This essay constitutes an attempt to elaborate a new reading of Ibn Khaldûn’s seminal work and proposes an entirely new interpretation for the French-speaking reader by taking into account Muhsin Mahdi’s analysis. Starting by a reinterpretation of the work’s complete title, we try to achieve a renewal of the reflection on the scientific reach the author’s intellectual contribution. This reinterpretation opens the door to a new perspective on the structure of the text’s plan. This new perspective, in turn, allows us to conceptualize with more precision the epistemological frame of the social science the North-African author proposes. We will show how this frame has been extracted, by Ibn Khaldûn, starting by a particular form of syncretism integrating the intellectual baggage of the Aristotelian philosophical tradition to the baggage of the Arab classical intellectual tradition. The result happens to be a specific Arab model of scientific discipline dedicated to the study of real human societies. This model allowing us then to propose a series of comparisons between the different scientific models studying a similar object by relying on the example of Machiavelli’s scientific model.|
