Summary/Abstract: This paper is expected to explore some parts of Taha Abdurrahman's philosophy, the Moroccan philosopher, which encloses accumulated aspects in the field of his pedagogical foundation and epistemological approach in logic and language. In addition, it presents his creativity by resorting to various languages, such as English, German, French, Greek. Moreover, I shoud light on the technical, objective and conceptual approaches of Taha. I also elaborate on examining the semantics of Taha's terminology and the possibilities of applying his approaches in order to attain creativity hand in hand with tradition. By the paper's conclusion, I mention some examples of terms which the philosopher recreates, such as the term of creativity linked to instinct and how the creative thinker establishes his/her terminology. As well, I provide examples of the term "reason" in which Taha states essential notions, sets clear distinction between types of reasons, draws limits to them, and finally calls to reconstruct the "guided reason".
