Sabir – On the boundaries of knowledge, nation and language
Södertörn University, School of Social Sciences, Political Science.
2015 (English)In: Borders and the Changing Boundaries of Knowledge / [ed] Inga Brandell, Marie Carlson and Önver A. Cetrez, Istanbul: Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul , 2015, 195-208 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Political and institutional boundaries (empire, nation and academic disciplines), and boundaries to communication (language and script) enclose empirical knowledge. A series of investigations, all relevant to the Middle East and the Mediterranean, are presented here. They lay the ground for a detailed discussion of how scope conditions, previous research and misreading can explain Ernest Gellner’s use of the concept of ‘asabiyya, forged by the XIVth century scholar Ibn Khaldûn’s, and the transfer of it from its general context to his own modelling of a particular, Muslim, society – a move totally foreign to Ibn Khaldûn’s own intentions and thinking. Paradoxically the boundaries of knowledge can serve their very transgression, but when including knowledge from across the border it has to be done on its own terms. Ibn Khaldûn’s work, from a time before modern nations and academic disciplines, can serve as an example and an inspiration.
