Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this research was to examine the Iranian culture and society, and its relationship to some Western countries in order to understand the basis for the conflict between Western and Iranian educational values. Specifically, the objectives of this study were to describe: (1) the historical development of Iranian society; (2) the major religions and philosophies which underlie Iranian traditional values; (3) some elements of the socio-economic structure of the society and its system of education; (4) some historical development in Iranian relationships (contact) with some Western countries; (5) the basis for the conflict between the Western and Iranian cultures; and (6) some suggestions for the improvement of education in Iranian society. The study began with the search to trace the development of the Iranian society and its major religions and thoughts that shaped Iranian traditional values. It examined the socio-economic condition of Iran and its educational system, which do not promote the practice of Western educational ideas in Iran. The study described the relationship between Iran and some Western countries and found that the conflicts between Iran and the West were cultural as a whole and political, economic, and educational in particular. It showed that the Western science and technology acted as the key to influence most of the educated people in Iran and the ruling class, inciting them to work as agents of the Western culture and to introduce Western values to Iran through educational channels. The information revealed that the differences between Western and Iranian cultures resulted in different sets of values and consequently different expectations from the educational process. These differences were found to be the basis for the educational conflict between Iran and Western society. Finally, the study made some suggestions for the improvement of education in Iran.
