‘It is the first study of Ibn Khaldun which is not an apology either for the modern social sciences or for the ‘modern’ character of Ibn Khaldun’s thought, but a thoroughgoing analysis and interpretation of his text. This study concentrates on examining the principles of Ibn Khaldun’s new science of culture and explaining the precise nature of these principles against the background of classical and Islamic philosophy’.
