Muqaddima of Ibn Khaldun: Book One, Chapter Five, Making a Living

    Monday, April 01, 2024   No comments

 al-Muqaddima, often published in Arabic as Muqaddimat Ibn Khaldun or simply as al-Muqaddima, is a remarkable work of scholarship by the Muslim jurist, historian, philosopher, and thinker Abd al-Rahman Ibn Khaldun, widely known simply as Ibn Khaldūn (d. 1406 CE). In al-Muqaddima, Ibn Khaldun built an astounding body of knowledge covering broad areas of inquiry including history, philosophy, sociology, ethnography, economics, and other practical and abstract sciences.

This publication is the first comprehensive and critical English translation, since the release of Franz Rosenthal’s seminal work more than half a century ago. The current volume focuses on Book One, Chapter Five of al-Muqaddima, which covers Ibn Khaldun’s economic philosophy.

This edition includes an introduction by the translator Ahmed E. Souaiaia, highlighting some of Ibn Khaldun’s most significant theoretical contributions to economics.
