Krise des arabischen Intellektuellen
Abdallah Laroui (Arabic: عبدالله العروي; born 7 November 1933) is a Moroccan philosopher, historian and novelist writing in Arabic and French. Laroui is considered one of the leading Arab philosophers since the 1960s. His philosophical project has been expressed in books on historicity, history, ideology, liberty, and reason. He has influenced a generation of scholars since his appearance on the Arab intellectual scene in the late 1960s and early 1970s, with a famous first text on modern Arab ideology.
Born in Azemmour, Laroui taught at the University Mohammed V in Rabat until 2000. He has also written five novels (o.a. L’Exil (Sindbad-Actes Sud, 1998)).
