For the devout muslim progressive, Malik Bennabi's work is of the utmost importance. In his book "The Question of Culture", he said that the organisation of society, its life and movement, indeed, its deterioration and stagnation, all have a functional relation with the system of ideas found in that society. This should set bells ringing for anyone who is familiar with the idea of memes. While Bennabi doesn't waste his time exploring the biology of mimetic units, his exposition on the power of ideas and the need for societies to constantly discard bad ideas and absorb good ones, while obvious to any Western reader, is revolutionary in the Islamic world.
