New Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove
Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat, and Iranian Leviathan: A Monumental History of Mithra's Abode.
Here he explains why he views Iranian civilization as comparable to Western civilization in that it encompasses multiple nations and linguistic variations. Persian, at one time, was the official language of a region extending from Delhi to Istanbul. He voices his opinion that a renaissance of Iranian culture is in process and that it could lead to greater global stability. In particular, he emphasizes the many humanistic and esoteric threads that permeate Iranian culture.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is a past vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology; and is the recipient of the Pathfinder Award from that Association for his contributions to the field of human consciousness exploration.
