Abstract
This essay examines the way in which the traditional form and concept of the muqaddima, as developed in the arabic tradition, is employed by lebanese marxist scholar Husayn Mroueh (1910-1987) in his work on the arabic-islamic heritage, al-naza̔āt al-mādiyya fī al-falsafa al-̔arabiyya al-islāmiyya.

This essay examines the way in which the traditional form and concept of the muqaddima, as developed in the arabic tradition, is employed by lebanese marxist scholar Husayn Mroueh (1910-1987) in his work on the arabic-islamic heritage, al-naza̔āt al-mādiyya fī al-falsafa al-̔arabiyya al-islāmiyya. The theoretical framework for the study is provided by Peter Freimarks study Das Vorwort als literarische Form in der arabischen Literatur, which examines the development of the muqaddima-form in the classical arabic era. Husayn Mrouehs specific Muqaddima is then compared to Freimarks definition of the muqaddima, in terms of topoi and content, as well as to a general conception of the traditional function of the muqaddima, and relationship of muqaddima to the main text.

It is found that Mrouehs Muqaddima to a greate extent conforms to the traditional concept of the muqaddima, in terms of topoi used as well as in terms of function; i e it serves to provide a discursive foundation to the main text. The conclusion is thus that despite the radical and anti-traditionalistic content and aim of Mrouehs endeavour, he employs traditional literary concepts and forms in the structuring of his text.
