Reclaiming the sane society : essays on Erich Fromm's thought by Seyed Javad Miri( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erich Fromm's body of work, written more than 50 years ago, was prophetic of the contemporary moment: Increasingly, global society is threatened by the many-headed monster of corporate greed, neo-liberalism, nihilism, extreme fundamentalist beliefs, and their resulting effects on the natural world and the lived lives of people. Fromm clearly warned us of the peril of the misuse of technology and the destructive nature of man's perverse desire to possess, control and/or destroy. Through his theories of having vs. being, the importance of hope as active resistance, and his notion of freedom as t

In Ali Shariati and the Future of Social Theory: Religion, Revolution and the Role of the Intellectual, Dustin J.

Thought to be the most important intellectual behind the Iranian Revolution of 1979, these essays engage in a future-oriented remembrance of Shariati's life and praxis, with the practical attempt to clarify, expand, and apply his liberational Islamic thought to modern conditions. Making use of Shariati's writings on Shi'a Islam and western philosophy, this text is especially important for those who want to understand the role that intellectuals, both religious and secular, can have in the liberation of mankind

Social theory, religion and critical discourses : critical theory in the postmodern globe by Seyed Javad Miri( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humanity at large has arrived at a critical point in its destiny. The consensus of stupidity has reached its zenith in our time to a grandiose proportion in all fields of human praxis. To be or not to be is not anymore an issue for contemporary human person as s/he has lost touch with the wonderful possibilities. The issue at hand for contemporary self is how to get by and ask for what's next. In other words, our system of societal organization has turned so alienated from lofty concepts of good, beauty, just and truth that realities explained by Jung or Maslow such as individuation or Peak- Experiences seem so foreign and inaccessible to us because we have become so deeply accustomed to inauthentic lifestyles which are devoid of ultimate realities. I believe that sociology is a kind of theology with a democratic orientation. While theology is focused on what God envisions about the destiny of humanity, sociology, on the other hand, it is the reasoning of human being on what the destiny could provide for her/him in a world that is really unknown and unbeknown to this thrown-away Dasein
