Authors : Ghennam Fatima .

Abstract

Abstract This article examines the ideas of Malek Bennabi as revealed in his collection "Problems of Civilization", in which he argued that Algeria as well as the whole Islamic World suffers, in effect, from a civilizational crisis that ensue all aspects of backwardness. The importance of this article lies in the fact that through dissection of this crisis, Bennabi uncovered the real reasons and factors that caused it and their repercussions. The essence of the disintegration of the Algerian civilization is of humanitarian nature that lies in the change of the individual. This article, thereby, is an attempt to spot the light on what Bennabi asserted is the initial necessary step to get out from the civilizational crisis, which is to accurately expound the right questions that lie at the heart of it. In addition to the suggested solutions that make up the necessary conditions for a civilizational "décollage" through which Algeria can regenerate its civilization. This article aims, also, to highlight some basic ideas of Bennabi such as colonialism and colonisability, the ideological conflict, and the role of religion; besides, it calls for embracing his ideas and rendering them alive.
