Intellect and Religion

A short clip by Dr. Holakouee about intellectualism and religion and why there is no such thing as religious intellectuals (i.e. Ali Shari'ati or Jalal Aal-Ahmad).

Dr Holakouee is one of the greatest minds among the contemporary Iranian thinkers. Those who find this difficult to fathom betray their own ignorance and deep inferiority complexes which as shown on pages of this blog is confirmed by their totally upside down and convoluted minds.

Keep licking your wounds you little people.

Dr. Holakoo'ee himself for years was considered a religious intellectual. In fact until he was disgraced for engaging in financial fraud during the '80s and was sanctioned by religious auhtorities Holaakoo'ee was considered a notable religious intellectual of the Baha'i Faith in his own right.

"a notable religious intellectual of bahai faith engaging in financial fraud"...
hmmmm I have a feeling we have seen this "scientist, philosopher, mystic, etc" on the old iranian.com site many times befoere, lasting a week or two at most before getting kicked out for making hate comments and threats against jews and bahaiis.
Now that was a clever move by you mr "scientist mystic..", deleting my comments in your "daniel pipes blog", exposing your support of the terrorist "Quds" gang of Iranian regime, responsible for the murder of countless US citizens. you are trying to use that empty void in your skull, a clear sign of slow evolutionary progress per darwin's!
LOL!

Yes, Dr. Holaakoo'ee was briefly expelled from the Baha'i Faith by Baha'i authorities for defrauding quite a few people, most of whom were Baha'is like himself.

Brother Holakouee

It would have helped if you could give an example of who you think is a ROSHANFEKR as a basis to compare others with him or her.

By the way I noticed that despite of being so precise with his definition of this or that, Brother Holakouee made no distinction between MAZHAB and DEEN. Very different words and meanings but according to brother Holakouee there is no difference between them.

Sorry brothers and sisters but this brother is not as precise as expected.

Never heard this much mumbo jumbo nonsense, with subtle tinges of intellectuality, self-aggrandizement/adoration in my life! Rationalizing the immoral and the illegal existence of the corrupt regime that is the Islamic Republic!

His PhD must have come from Beverly Hills University?! Majoring in non-stop EMPTY speech, not saying MUCH, !!!???

I also think that the good doctor does not, much, believe in separation of State and Church; an ongoing successful practice, in the West, for over 400 years!

Therefore, according to the definition of intellectual/rowshanfekr the doctor has just established, not a single individual who either led or participated in the 1979 devolution in Iran satisfies this requirement! Now, go figure why we are where we are!

It's because the "revolution" was a "reaction" much in the same way the Nazi takeover was a reaction. Calls to traditionalism and ages ago are usually done by idiots who cannot comprehend that those ages have passed for a reason.

دکتر هلاکویی عزیز گٔل گفتی‌. ولی‌ امان از این تاریک فکران. یک قرصی چیزی نمی‌شه واسه این آقا دمو تجویز کنی‌؟

فرهنگ هلاکویی یکی از چهره های تلویزیونی خارج از کشور است که اسمش را جلو بسیاری از ایرانیها ببرید بی نصیب از عکس العمل نمی مانید. کتاب‌ها و سی-دی های او در ایران هم فروخته میشود. در یکی از برنامه های تلویزیونی اش اظهار میکند که سعی او به چالش کشیدن برخی از عادات آزاردهنده در فرهنگ ایرانی است و تأکید میکند آنچه به شنوندگان میگوید به هیچ وجه روان-درمانی نیست. ولی کو گوش شنوا. پر واضح است که آقای دکتر واقف است که در طی چند دقیقه، از راه دور، و بدون مصاحبه حضوری و گرفتن تاریخچه مفصل از حال و احوال زندگی و علی الخصوص دوران کودکی فرد امکان تشخیص دردْ و نسخه‌ پیچی وجود ندارد. اما علاقه به مردم مستأصل ایران مانع از این می‌شود که در مقابل عجز و لابه مشتریان تلویزیون سکوت اختیار کند. لذا سالهاست کاری را ادامه میدهد که دهها پاپ-پسیکولوژیست و پاپ-سوسیالوژیست دیگر هم انجام میدهند: نادیده گرفتن اعتقادات حرفه‌ای یک درمانگر بالینی. نتیجه این می‌شود که شنوندگانش حرفهایش را یک‌جا رد میکنند و یا دربست میپذیرند هر چند که با اتمام هر برنامه پی کارشان می‌روند و همان عادات و کارهای قبلی را تکرار میکنند

قدرت او را در استفاده از آنالوژی، شیرین زبانی، و مزاح در بررسی برخی از مسایل اجتماعی به زبانی مردم پسندانه و قابل فهم نمیتوان نادیده گرفت.در دقیقه شش و نیم همین ویدیو با نکته سنجی اشاره‌ای مختصر دارد به مسیله حقیقت مطلق و واقعیت و رابطه منطقی این دو با آزادی بیان

بی‌شک پاره‌ای از محبوبیتش را مرهون استعدادش در زمینه استند-آپ-کمدی است. بالاخره استند-آپ-کمدین ها هم بنابر تعریف عامیانه (نه علمی) یک جوری سوسیالوژیست هستند. در برخی از کنفرانس ها ایشان چنان سیاستمدارانه و با ریشخند صندلی از زیر پای مدعوین میکشد که خلق الله متوجه نمیشوند از کجا خورده اند

هر کدام از ما درعین دلبستگی به فرهنگ ایرانی بالاخره یکی دو تا دلگیری هم از فرهنگمان داریم که زورمان هم بهش نمیرسد. من فکر میکنم یکی از دلایل محبوبیت آقای دکتر این است که او از طرف ما شاکیانْ این جنبه‌ها را به رینگ بکس میبرد و... بقیه‌اش را خودتان بارها در ماهواره دیده اید

آنچه بیش از هر چیزی من را قلقلک میدهد این است که رابطه مستمعین با ایشان مثل بقیه رابطه‌های ایرانیان با یکدیگر از الگوی فرادست-فرودست پیروی میکند . رابطه سنتی ارباب و رعیت بدون هیچ کوششی از طرفین برای فرد شدن رعیت. دکتر هلاکویی هم مثل بقیه مون به طرز غم انگیزی ایرونی است

Islamists are their own worst enemies! Please read your comment. You are not arguing against his reasoning and thoughts. You are throwing in things like Los Angeles, Shah-era, fossilized, etc. That's why you people never stand a chance against knowledgeable, educated and smart people. You are just good at climbing walls and burning things. As usual you don't know much about the subject matter because this topic was not covered in the single book that you have read.

دکترهلاکویی متولّد دهم شهریور ماه ۱۳۲۳ در شهر شیراز است. او دارای مدرک دکترا در رشتهٔ «جامعه‌شناسی» و سه فوق‌لیسانس در رشته‌های «روانشناسی»، «اقتصاد» و «مشاورهٔ ازدواج، خانواده و کودکان» است. او پیش از انقلاب استاد دانشکدهٔ علوم‌اجتماعی دانشگاه تهران بوده‌است.


دکتر هلاکوئی پس از به پایان بردن تحصیلاتش در آمریکا در سال ۱۳۵۳، به ایران بازگشت. مدّت زمانی سرپرست «کمیتهٔ فرهنگی ـ اجتماعی» در «معاونت برنامه ريزى و سياست گذارى» سازمان رادیو و تلویزیون ملی ایران بود و همچنین در دانشگاه تهران نیز به تدریس می‌پرداخت.

"That's why you people never stand a chance against knowledgeable, educated and smart people." OH, REALLY?

This so called Doctor of Philosophy of yours in some BS is neither knowledgeable nor smart on Demo's yardstick. Demo already knew about his background & never spends even a minute watching his videos. Time is too precious to waste.

You yourself have been attacking/judging/naming Demo without knowing anything about this ;'single book holder.'. Haven't Your Honor, F?

Practice what you preach Your Majesty, F!.

Your Najessy Demon,
This is not the first time that you have put your foot in your mouth and then try to retract by making up stories.
Here is my advice to you, instead of stalking me and others on this site, go write your own blogs and live in peace!
