Abstract

Abstract:

This article will compare the ways in which tyranny has been interpreted by two renowned Muslim political thinkers, Alfarabi and Ibn Khaldun. In particular, their divergence on the topic of tyranny reveals a striking divide between contending approaches in political thought, those of philosophical idealism (Alfarabi) and empiricism (Ibn Khaldun).
