Pages: 47 - 79


The dialogue of civilization, or what is called by western and American scholars as the collision or clashes among civilizations, is considered as one of the most recent issue of our time which has the attention of scholars from all over the world. Specialists from various field of study discussed this issue in order to answer one particular question: Are cultures exchanging dialogues or clashes? These specialists expressed their different opinions toward this case; some were for the clashes and others preferred dialogues.

And l have proven with legal evidence that cultures do not clash. And this term is an heresy from those have no culture at all and who depend on force to create righteousness and protect it......

This research work rates among those studies, which deal with agronomy as one type of the scientific aspects of the Islamic Arab Legacy. In the period between the 4th and the 6th centuries of the Hijri calendar, Andalusia witnessed the emergence of an agricultural school, whose leaders‘ concerns focused on studying plants from an agronomist perspective. They held meetings and had their own deliberations, and wrote books in this field. The Andalusite Al Haj Abu Abdallah Moh‘d Ibn Ibraheem Ibn Bassal was a pioneer of that school. He successfully used the scientific experimental method in conducting his research, and eventually obtained substantial conclusions, which he embodied in a book, that was clearly outstanding among all other volumes available in Andalusia, East and West. His contemporary authors, and those who came after him as well, described it as the book that is completely based on its authors personal experience. Indeed, the book reflects the practically proven hands, on the one hand, and the applicable ones on the other. The book is exclusive, too; it is free of quotations from any other source. The author did not mention any title of any reference he had acquainted himself with. as he was quite aware that he was only writing hard scientific facts, which, hence, need no reference.

The Inheritors and the Pursuit of Form



Pages: 9 - 31


The present paper is an attempt to read Goldings The inheritors with a particular reference to its formal and narrative aspects. If we bear in mind that most of the characters in this novel are premen and sentient men who represent the polar opposites, the problem of narrative technique and linguistic difficulty becomes all the more urgent and ultimately indispensable in any serious consideration of this novel and its position in contemporary fiction. Thus the points that will receive the most attention here are those related to narration, point of view and linguistic rendering of very different mentalities. The paper draws upon the findings of formalists, new critics and structuralists in shedding light on Golding‘s novel and its rich resources. The method followed throughout is basically technical, linguistic and aesthetic in that the emphasis is laid on the images, perceptions, view points and the authors interpretation of those inheritors of the title......
