IBNA- A webinar titled "Idealism and Realism from the View of Allameh Tabatabaei" will be held by Iran's Philosophy and Theosophy Research Institute in Tehran on Monday.
A faculty member of Tehran University Hamid Talebzadeh will make a speech at the event and Mohammad Hosseinzadeh, a faculty member of Iran's Philosophy and Theosophy Research Institute will attend the online event as the scientific secretary.
Seyyed Mohammad Hossein Tabatabaei known as Allameh Tabatabaei was an Iranian religious scholar and philosopher, one of the most prominent thinkers in modern Shia Islam. He is perhaps best known for his Tafsir al-Mizan, a twenty-seven-volume work of tafsir (Quranic exegesis), which he produced between 1954 and 1972.
Several treatises on the doctrines and history of the Shia remain from him as well. One of these comprises his clarifications and expositions about Shia faith in reply to the questions posed by the famous French orientalist Henry Corbin.
Another of his books on this topic 'Shia in Islam' was translated into English by Islamic philosopher Seyyed Hossein Nasr under the title ‘Shi'a Islam’, with the help of William Chittick as a project of Colgate University
