In his book, Sociological Imagination in Sadrian Paradigm: Probing into issues of religion and humanities, Seyed Javad Miri is confronted with the problem of the relationship of sociological to Islamic thought. How are Muslims, in their resistance to Western cultural imperialism,unconsciously carried on by disciplines like sociology, able to make
use of it as a social scientifi c discipline? Islam has a very rich cultural and intellectual tradition, which can make significant contributions to the field of sociology.
