Liberty and History in the Muqaddimah of Ibn Khaldun
The objective of this seminar was to explore Ibn Khaldun's insights on history, economics, and sociology in a manner that provoked reflections on their anticipation of ideas normally associated with later Western scholarship, and the relationship of Ibn Khaldun's views to his religious context.
