Les origines de la Nahdha au crible de l'orientalisme

Abstract : For long, there was a broad consensus among academics saying that, within the Arabic world, an historical interlude has been opened with the Mongol invasion and has been closed during the 19th century. A period stigmatized as follows: "age of imitation and compilation" (Nicholson), "profound intellectuel lethargy" (Gibb), "period of sleep" (Abd al-Jalil), "decadence", "obscurity" (Lewis, Wiet), "disastrous lethargy" (Nuseibeh)... Researchers who tried to reassess what Ottomans have done in this region were the exception. However, as for the first group, there was no agreement about the reason which could explain : ihyâ' ("regrowth"), iqtibâs ("starting a fire with the help of another fire"),or yaqaza (something linked to "awakening"), what some people call nahdha (kind of "renaissance").
