Abu Hayyan Al-Tawheedi: His Social and Linguistic Views and Some of His Attitudes (in Arabic)

Auther : Mohamad Ihsan El-Nuss

 

Depite the abundance of modern studies on the life and works of Abu Hayyan A-Tawheedi, some of his news and views are still unknown, ambiguous or controversial.

The aim of this paper is to clarify a number of these controversial issues, to explain some of Al-Tawheedi’s rather eccentric deeds such as his burning of his books in the last days of his life, and to draw the attention of scholars to some of his views which are still to be found in various places in his works. Some of his views may be related to sociology, others to the philosophy of history, and a third group may be associated with linguistic and phonological studies.

It is here concluded that A;-Tawheedi was an Arab rather that a Persian, and that he was not brought up in Sheiraz or in Neisabour, but in Baghdad. This contradicts the claims of most of his biographers. It is also concluded that he was one of the pioneers of sociology and the philosophy of history in his brief talk on the “cycle of civilization” some of his views on Arabic Phonology were quite new in his age and they deserve to be studied by specialists in this field.
