Academic Biography

I completed my first Master`s degree at Shahid Beheshti University in Iran. The title of my thesis was: The Place of Love and Wisdom in Greek Mythology. By the help of the findings and enlightenment of some contemporary philosophers, I investigated the way the mythological culture in ancient Greece led to the formation of Philosophy, first as a way of life and second as a discipline. I evaluated the religious, socio-political, and linguistic aspects of the sphere this formation occurred in.

As an undergraduate student, I enrolled in several History of Western Philosophy and Islamic Philosophy courses and completed a very comprehensive and competitive Undergraduate Program in Philosophy. I passed all of the courses with excellence and graduated as the best student, in the same way that I did later as a graduate student.
