Description - The Political Thought of Ayatollah Murtaza Mutahhari by Mahmood T. Davari
Ayatollah Murtaza Mutahhari was a significant figure in the movement which brought the Islamic Republic of Iran into being. Mutahhari, a student of Ayatollah Khomeini and particularly close to his mentor, had broad theoretical concerns regarding religion, society and economy. He is generally considered as a prominent contemporary intellectual figure among the Iranian and Shiite scholars of the time. This book describes the life and works of this philosopher, jurist, preacher and writer, who was educated in the Qum Seminary and worked in Tehran. Having been one of Mutahhari's and his life time friend Ayatollah Montazeri's students, Davari is the right person to depict the life of this influential man. His expertise in the political ideas and the religious philosophy which Mutahhari studied also qualify the author to convey them to the readers. Additionally, this book is important and original owing to the inclusion of personal interviews and previously unpublished documents.
