Abstract

Al-Jahidh's literarary and linguistic writings were outstanding and this is evident in his book: At-Taju fi Akhlaqi il-Muluk (The Crown: On Kings' Morality) where he discloses his methodology by dividing it into parts according to an intellectual methodological vision. In this book he talks, according to a clear method, about the ruling class in the Abbasid period and his description was an absolute evidence that he knew what was going on and everything about their nomenclature, their conditions, works and other traaits. This description could never have been in this accuracy without AL-Jahidh's cultural and philosophical potentiality to scrutinize those events which took place among rulers and ministers.
