Abdal-llah Belqiziz, a Moroccan philosopher in Book of Arabic and Modernity: A Study of Modernist Discourse poses the question of how encountered Arab intellectual discourses (authentic, reformist, and liberal) with modernity; Why these discourses have not succeeded in opening the way to Arab modernity? According to Belqiziz, the main problem goes back to the theoretical framework of these discourses, which contains the following problems: 1. A mechanical definition of the relationship between oneself and another; 2- Linear view of history; 3- Incomplete understanding of modernity. In contrast to Belqiziz, the discourse of critical rationalism because of its reliance on the internal dialectic between self and the other; self and the other dialectical critique; Nonlinear view of history (simultaneous intellectual history); Cultural understanding of modernity; Avoidance of absolutism; possibility of combining Western and Islamic reason as the solution to these problems. But it seems that Belqiziz's solution still has two fundamental problems: 1- The inevitability of modernity; 2- Lack of pure indigenous epistemological system and methodology for transition to progress.
