ibn khaldoun (1332-1406). in the more than 1,000 years between the times of the philosopher aristotle in ancient greece and the writer machiavelli in renaissance italy, the most preeminent social scientist in the west was a muslim arab scholar named ibn khaldoun. he was a historian, philosopher of history, and sociologist, much of whose life was devoted to public service and teaching.
ibn khaldoun was born in tunis on may 27, 1332, the descendant of a family that had for centuries served in high administrative posts in spain and north africa. he received a thorough education in the koran--the holy book of islam--and in muslim law and the masterpieces of arab literature.
from 1352 to 1375 he held various government posts in spain and africa. he then retired to a castle near frenda, tiaret, algeria, and wrote his masterpiece, the “muqaddimah”(the intorduction), an introduction to history. in 1382 he sailed to egypt, where he spent most of the remainder of his life. he became a teacher at schools in cairo and was made a chief judge and interpreter of muslim law. in 1400 he spent several months at the court of timur lenk, also known as tamerlane, the mongol conqueror who had just overrun syria. he eventually returned to cairo, where he died on march 17, 1406.
ibn khaldoun's chief works were the “muqaddimah” and the “kitab al-'ibar” (the book of lessons/morals), a definitive history of muslim north africa. the “muqaddimah”, a theoretical introduction to the latter, presents a philosophy of history and of the rise and fall of cultures. filled with brilliant observations on economics, politics, education, and historiography, it also contains wide-ranging sociological sketches in a variety of areas.
 

Try not to forget any word.
