Abstract

Religious war and the separation of the Church and state affairs in the global north contributed to the emergence and implementation of various ideologies. Instead of having a positive impact these ideologies have become a source of extreme violence and corruption across the planet. Neoliberalism, non-intervention in the socio-economic affairs of mankind is considered as an advanced state of mankind ideological evolution and End of History. In addition, it is believed as free from internal contradiction and can be settled by an alternate ideology. In sharp contrast, Muslims believe that besides other disagreement, one of the unresolvable contradictions between neoliberalism and Islam is the gnosis of human being which the present study will undertake. In this paper using the methodology of library research we explore how the liberal and Islamic economists conceptualize man in their analysis on the behaviour of man and the degree to which the concept of man has been universalized.
