Blurb/Shorttext:
In the ninth century peninsula, Arab Muslim Humanism loomed over the world and spread its splendid light; Islam was seen by several historians, for example Ibn Khaldoun ,Arnold Toynbee and Mark Graham, as the only TRIGGER Mechanism for this peculiar Muslim Enlightenment. This book investigates one of the most prominent figure during the Abbasid period, namely A.I.B.Jahiz ; the latter was regarded as a sociologist, historian, philosopher, educator, father founder of prose-writing and theologist. His theory of word meaning has largely impacted literary criticism and created new pathways for world literature. Moreover, his ideas scattered within his voluminous books formulate a beautiful theory about translation studies, modern sociology, logics and Zoology. In fact,this book endeavors to articulate the reasons behind the downfull of Muslim Humanism at the end of ninth century, yet the remedy for our contemporary malade should start from hailing the task of translation and,therefore, accomodating it into the ambit of Academia.
