Tâhâ Huseyn occupies an important place in modern Arabic literature. He studied Western research methods and applied them to his works. Because of this aspect of his writings, he has been known as a reformer. Furthermore, he worked in the area of education as well. He did not like traditional educational system in Egypt, and he emphasized necessary changes in Egyptian educational system in every opportunity. He expressed his ciritical views regarding literature education in Egypt in his important work, Fi'l-Edebi'l-Câhilî. In the light of this work, we try to determine his ideas on the subject of literature and its education.
