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.
Many viewers will know that Jason Reza Jorjani has suffered from libel and persecution as a result of his, generally misunderstood, political views. He is a brilliant scholar who has now been unfairly disgraced and is forced to fight a legal battle, while continuing his research and writing, without any regular employment. Therefore we have set up this “Go Fund Me” page in order to assist this worthy individual.
