Big thanks to our friend Al-Muqaddimah for his help with this video. The look of this video's maps is an homage to his wonderful mapmaking style. For more Islamic History, check out his channel here: uzpost.info/down/f0O2efB4K66UUaT7QJPVNA
From the coast of Tunisia across the Straits of Gibraltar, over the Atlas Mountains, and east to the Nile of Egypt, Ibn Khaldun had certainly seen history at work. That experience came in handy as he wrote The Muqaddimah, a genre-defining masterwork of Historiography - not just retelling the events of the past, but explaining their causes and effects through the lens of human behavior and sociology.

Bro... it's cool that you try to show the Arabic words, but none of them are displaying properly. For example, Khalud's name is خلدون but you have each letter separated like خ ل د و ن . Arabic words are essentially required to be written in "cursive" with each letter connected when possible.

@0:37 god damnit! At least the Arabic text is in the right direction (right to left). The letters are not connected. Pro tip: if your video editing software doesn't fully support foreign script, type the thing in a text editor that support the script, create a screenshot, and use it as graphic in the video editor. Cool video subject. Sorry about the rant.

Blue, could you do a series on republics? You’ve done so much work on them already (Rome, your beloved Venice, Machiavelli’s analysis). I’d like to see a history video on the Dutch Republic’s Golden Age and see how they compare. What works? What fails? What conditions are necessary for a republic to flourish and how do they tackle problems like factionalism? (You can’t crush them like the Nika riots if you’re not an emperor.) Food for thought. Thank you :).

Regarding the Mongols, they did a lot of cool stuff with Astronomy as Hulagu Khan built the Maragha observatory in what is now Modern day Iran. Also later the Timurids also made interesting contributions in the form of the Samerqand Observatory, the largest and most significant observatory in the world at that time. With an Meridian sextant that had an radius of 40 metres wide. The Samarqand Observatory was circular in shape and had three storeys. It was over 50 metres in diameter and 35 metres high. It's builder was the scholar and Ruler Ulugh Beg, who was the teacher and co-worker of Ali Qushji, who made many contributions to Astronomy and Mathematics and fairly accurately determined the shape of the Earth, the other planets and movements of the stars. He also wrote in one of his books that the Planets of our solar system orbit the Sun, so he did the whole Heliocentric thing long before Copernicus. I just wanted to throw this in, because Islamic science did not end with the Mongol invasion and wanted to clear up this myth here, because it is often spread in videos regarding Islamic Science.

Great video, but as a history student I've been taught, Thucydides is the first historiographer as he took a way more objective approach to writing history than Herodotos

@TRAGOS it’s all good, my friend. Thucydides is accurate, yes. All I said was he wasn’t the first lmao. And I gave some context on why you might’ve said that.
TRAGOS 3 oy oldin
@Queer_Dreams_Of_Soothing_Rain why would you assume that? Not saying you're wrong, but I gave you no footing to reach the conclusion my education is Eurocentric "and by contrast less accurate". I didn't tell you where I'm studying, neither did I say anything about how my university operates. For all you know, I could be a student in Africa ( where Ibn khaldun is from ). I mean, by that logic I could also claim the education you received is prejudice because of the country you study in, because no matter the place, each country has something to gain by teaching you in a certain not so objective way . Anyways, I don't want to come off as aggressive, but you've never said you've been taught Thucydides wasn't in fact the world's first historiographer. No matter where you've been taught, everyone familiar with history knows Thucydides is by far the most credible out of the first greek historians ( Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon ), so it's not a stretch to call him s historiographer. Finally, ( this comes from my teacher and I haven't researched it on my own, so I might be wrong ) Thucydides has stated he believed history should also describe the deeper motives behind actions, for the benefit of the future generations ( He was the one that first acknowledged the Trojan war didn't happen because of Helen, like Homer's poems claim, but because of Troy's beneficial position ). Again, don't mean to come off as aggressive.

I’m a global history student studying to be a political science major. And I mean, I assume your class may be more Eurocentric and by contrast, less accurate. I was taught in primary school that modern medicine derived from European and jewish religious and spiritual practices, but medicinal teachings derived from so much earlier and eastern than that. Sashruta and Hua Tao are great examples. Eurocentric world views are often wrong and quite boring.

Hey I found the Greek myth for Capricorn “when Pan the god of the wild attended a party in the banks of the Nile, his wonderful music attracted the monster Typhos. Pan transformed in to a fish and goat “Capricorn” and swam away. Zeus seeing the amazingly confusing transformation thought it would be a good idea to save it in the stars making the consolation Capricorn.

6:40 it just goes to show how much group solidarity is important to build a stable society. Still, if there is serious inequality from the beginning, it will surely pop up at one point and ruin everything like a self fulfilling prophecy... It's like dieting :) If you want to see results without the boomerang-effect, you need to pick a suitable one that your body can endure for a very very long run.
