World Philosophy Day in Tehran?

Iran Puts New Restrictions on 12 Academic Disciplines Deemed Too Western

October 24, 2010, 9:16 pm

The Iranian government will prevent universities from opening new departments in 12 disciplines deemed to be too Western and therefore in conflict with Islamic principles, a senior education official said on state radio on Sunday, the Canadian Press reported. Existing programs in the restricted subjects, which include law, philosophy, management, psychology, political science, women's studies, and human rights, will be revised to make their content compatible with Islamic teachings, and the official said he expected up to 70 percent of existing programs to be revised over the next few years.

According to Reuters, more than half of Iran's 3.5 million university students study the social sciences and humanities, and the announcement on Sunday followed previous indications that the government was planning to halt what it views as a deeply problematic trend that helped to fuel the protests in the aftermath of last year's disputed presidential election.

The move is likely to intensify objections from some academics to the decision by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization to hold this year's celebration of World Philosophy Day in Tehran. The New York Times reported that a number of academics around the world have urged a boycott of the November 18 event, saying that by holding it in Iran, Unesco risks allowing the event to become "a propaganda exercise for a brutal regime."


Being happy–is it good for the Jews? "Before Professor Dershowitz accused me of being an anti-Semite (news to me), I was a happy person. Since then, I'm still a happy person". –Michael Santomauro

An antisemite condemns people for being Jews, I am not an antisemite.--Michael Santomauro

Most of us are mentally trapped to think Jewish. Actually, it is safe to say that virtually every mainstream publication or or other type of media organ is "nothing more than a screen to present chosen views." The great battle over the last century has been a battle for the mind of the Western peoples, i.e., non-Jewish Euros. The chosen won it by acquiring control over essentially the complete mainstream news, information, education and entertainment media of every type, and using that control to infuse and disseminate their message, agenda and worldview, their way of thinking, or rather the way they want us to think. Since at least the 1960s this campaign has been effectively complete. Since then they have shaped and controlled the minds of all but a seeming few of us in varying degree with almost no opposition or competition from any alternative worldview. So now most of us are mentally trapped in the box the chosen have made for us, which we have lived in all our lives. Only a few have managed to avoid it or escape it, or to even sometimes see outside of it, and so actually "think outside of the (Jewish) box." --Michael Santomauro
