 "Manuscripts of the science of discourse and beliefs and philosophy in great Arab Maghreb "


It is no secret to the Arab and Muslim man today how important it is wading into the study of manuscripts and exclusively not combining in creeds fields and science of speech and philosophy, and if we use the term field, it means the area beyond epistemological any of these complex relationships and complex between a number of oracles and non-oracles required and raised by problematic forum and this is what opens up for condensation and overlappingof different sciences and knowledge, Hence the diversity of readings within the perspective of philosophical criticism, historical vision, Sociological experiences, anthropological and contemporary cultural criticism.

It became apparent that the awareness of the importance of the manuscript. has increased for the contemporary Arab and Muslim intellectuals increased with its various topics and issues established, whether on the subject of doctrines or in the science of speech and philosophy, and through it, it has already been established and the construction of many of the doctrines and beliefs approaches and new visions added richness of perceptions and ideas of civilization closely related to the ontological Arab-Islamic presence.

            However, these manuscripts have not yet achieved what is appropriate in terms of investigation, research and from Systematic and critical scrutiny, therefore, wewanted through this academic work to contribute to the revealing of the unthought aspects of the doctrinal, verbal and philosophical heritage and to uncover issues that need further investigation and research, and we hope that our contribution will be a means of opening up to the means of communication and scientific discussion among the various researchers on various issues of our doctrinal, verbal and philosophical heritage in the Grand Arab Maghreb.

How do we recognize it in the methods of our contemporary world? What additions might the manuscript add to the Arab and Muslim ontology? What are the strategic dimensions and objectives of the manuscript? Can we establish an independent science taught in our various universities that we call the Science of Manuscripts? Can the Arab or Muslim intellectual today of scientific and monetary erosion of the doctrinal, verbal and philosophical texts of the closure and dogmatism and neglect is repeated throughout the history of Arab and Islamic civilization? Does manuscript challenge cultural and civilization to face the other?
