Ibn Khaldun or Aith Khaldoun was a Arab Muslim historiographer and historian, and one of the founding fathers of modern historiography, sociology and economics.

He is best known for his Muqaddimah (known as Prolegomena in Greek), which was discovered, evaluated and fully appreciated first by 19th-century European scholarship, although it has also had considerable influence on 17th-century Ottoman historians like Haji Khalifa and Mustafa Naima who relied on his theories to analyze the growth and decline of the Ottoman Empire. Later in the 19th century, Western scholars recognized him as one of the greatest philosophers to come out of the Muslim world.
