Ibn-khaldun,s social change theory has been often classified as cyclic theoty of social changes that has three stages includes in generation, growth and progress and ultimately regressive and decadence. But, what is inferred by rethink in text of Ibn-khaldun,s Moghaddame, are two different courses,as interrelated to each other, “civilizational evolution” and “cyclic changes of state.Avoiding make absolute his ideas, Ibn-khaldun believes in multilinear or fluctuating evolution of civilization procedure, on the one hand, and cyclic/decadence change of states in the domain of Arab-Islamic civilization of his time on the other hand. It can be argued that cyclic changes of state processes and continues in framework of civilizational evolution, and because of relay civilization on level of state powerfulness, its changes are fluctuating form. Ibn-khaldun,s focus on decadence problem of state in the domain of Arab-Islamic ,can be seen as independent foundation for sociology of Islamic and thired world countries that without mimesis and total dependency to thoritical framework of western sociology, is consentrated on social problems of these countries.
