A bit about myself

I got 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. It is a phenomenological and existential approach to Greek mythology that argues philosophy was first formed as a particular way of life rather than a discipline in Greek culture.

I got my second Master’s degree from SF State. The title of my thesis was Virtuous Law: Plato on Law and the Development of Virtue. It focuses on Plato’s Laws to see how law, despite its compulsory aspect, can cultivate genuine virtue in citizens.

I am honored to be a part of the SF State community, looking forward to studying and working more on my areas of interest.
