Translated by Diarmid Cammell. He developed his ideas in La crise des intellectuels arabes: He expresses this position clearly in several abdaplah, for example, There is no justification to this call except one assumption that is extracted from history itself.

Hence, this starting point has been reflected on Laroui’s thought and philosophy. All that hinders scientific rationalism the logic of experience and induction through resorting to superstition in our daily live, in all our movements and stand still, in our eating, dresses, curing, in what we read and see, hinders modernization.

Abdalllah view is that the transformation of Arabic societies into the modern state can be achieved, only, by embracing the modernist Western thought with its basic categories of ‘Rationalism’, ‘Criticism’, ‘Advancement’, and ‘Responsibility of the human being’, on the theoretical level, and ‘Secularism’, ‘Marxist social system’ and the ‘Centrality of the state’, on the practical level. In this respect, he writes, The book ‘contemporary Arabic Ideology’ has been issued on In the post era, his critique of Arab culture encouraged Arab intellectuals to question the nature of the Arab nation-state and to find it parochial and inauthentic.

We read today books criticizes modernity and depend on it to say that the problematic of modernity has laroyi surpassed, is it true?

The conclusion of the first part is that the mind of the absolute, with its different origins and methods, leads inevitably llaroui failure to distinguish between the two concepts. In reality, there exists a process of westernization, we demand every thing on the margins of modernity, but the depth of modernity is absent. We say then that ‘Ideology’, in this use, is the mental image that is not identical to the social base related to it… This identification is characterized by relating the ideology with a specific historical circumstance, and this relation is abdalah basis of historicity which have been outlined in the book ‘Arabs and the historical thought’.

He is considered one of Morocco ‘s leading intellectuals.

We call, today, for modernism from different portals, the portal of the state, the portal of the civil society, and the portal of political parties, and others.
