Mohammad Tohidfam, Jalal Nezafat


It seems that key concepts are in the philosophy of Edward Said and the thoughts of Jalal Al-e Ahmad, the dual east and west, and the retrieval of identity in the Muslim world. However, Jalal has sought to provide a solution to his country's economic, cultural and political crisis and knows the view of the East to the West is the existence of Westernization in the meaning of another negation, the self-identity, in contrast, Edward Said criticized these two concepts by looking at the scholarly and philosophical basis of East and West, the theory of Orientalism and it is trying to provide a postmodernist solution and achieve transnational identity. If Jalal knows to return to self-identity, the Islamic identity is considered to be the mechanism of coping with the onslaught of modernism in the Islamic world. The method of studying the views of these two thinkers is a comparative study and Tried in addition to the means of sharing and differentiating these two in general, the intellectual paradigm, influential people, the field of influence, and are discussed the foundations and the reasons for their ideas.
