This is where Shariati was truly revolutionary; he spoke to the people in a language they could understand. His goal was to lift up the people spiritually and intellectually, and the reason why he is so influential, and remains so, is because of his ability to translate complex ideas into simple language. His was not a top down approach but a bottom up approach designed to enlighten the masses so that they would demand change of the status quo and force the religious leaders out of their lethargy as well as bring down the parasitic regime of Reza Pahlavi.
This is the best example of Shariati's ideas. It shows his intellectual approach as well as explaining how he blends his religion in with his intellectual ideologies. It gives the reader a good picture of how this man thought and how he developed his ideas and created this symbiosis between Western philisophy and scientific studies and Iranian Shi'ism.
This is one of the most influential Iranians of the last hundred years. His importance rivals that of Khomeini, and without Shariati there very well might not have been a Khomeini.Read more ›
