Reflections on the Social Thought of Allama M.T. Jafari: Rediscovering the Sociological Relevance of the Primordial School of Social Theory
"Defending the values of enlightenment and rationalism and pursuing dialogue between the major global civilizations is an important task at the global level in the years ahead, and it is in this respect that the present new book by Dr. Miri acquires particular importance for students of global politics and political thought."łArno Tausch, professor of political science, University of Innsbruck, Austria
When one speaks of sociology, places such as the US, UK, Germany, and France come to mind. To western or even eastern students of social sciences, the very idea that outside Europe and America one could come across sociological debates or theoretical debates on socio-cultural issues comes as a surprise, to say the least. In this work, the author presents the work of Allama M.T. Jafari, an Iranian contemporary social thinker who worked within the parameters of Primordial School of Social Theory. This work is an attempt to enrich the existing literature on comparative sociology and social philosophy.
