There is a discrepancy between the dominant conceptions of the status and role of the individual prevailing in modern Western ways of thinking, on the one hand, and, the Iranian ways of thinking on the other. This book examines the significance of the concept of the individual in the thinking of Iranians from theological and philosophical as well as socio-political and historical perspectives. The author establishes that the mystical dimension of Islamic thought, the divine nature of Islamic law and the mode of relationship between ruler and ruled in combination counteracted the growth of concern for the individual self in Iranian thought.
