Description - The Epistemology of Ibn Khaldun by Zaid Ahmad

This is an analytical examination of Ibn Khaldun's epistemology, centred on Chapter Six of the Muqaddima. In this chapter, entitled 'The Book of Knowledge' (Kitab al-'Ilm), Ibn Khaldun sketched his general ideas about knowledge and science and its relationship with human social organization and the establishment of civilization. Zaid Ahmad investigates the philosophical foundation of Ibn Khaldun's concept of knowledge, the hierarchical order of science and the sociological context in which knowledge and science can be transformed into the force that determines the prosperity of a civilization.
