Ahmed Amin (1886-1954) was one of our literates who lived though the beginnings of the last century Renaissance. He was taken by the awakening and emergent changes of the global literature and thought. Thus, he tried to be among the first to react with and participate in these changes in order that the Nation would take its suitable human and cultural position. He believed that such a position could be realized if continuous aware prerequisites including technical, scientific and cultural ones are prepared.
He believed right from the very beginning, that there is no specific closure of knowledge sphere, that any literature or nation's thought carries values and orientations which are ready for anywhere and anytime solutions. Thus, he claims for finding a new Arabic Literary discourse trying to add new spheres of knowledge to it. This is so, because it is illogical for the Nation's thought and literary discourse to remain in a state of previous works rumination. Thus, a new semantic foundation is required to benefit from the discourse of Present for the Future.
In his critical articles, and among the basics of this semantic foundations was his implied claim for uni3fying a distinctive framework and method of Arabic Literature away from subordination and imitation.
