About the Book

The most important step is not to find the answers for a thinker. The first step, on the contrary, is to spot the task in accordance to one's ethosal tradition. The task is to catalogue the contemporary 'concerns', 'issues', 'problems', 'sources of anxiety', 'fonts of angst', and thereafter present a coherent ethosal answer for the contemporary generation in a global perspective in all fields and domains of vital significance. This is the task a Shia-thinker (and religious thinkers in general) should turn to.
