I don't think something statements like "Philosophy has become a popular subject of study during last few decades in Iran. Comparing the number of philosophy books currently published in Iran with that in other countries, Iran possibly ranks first in this field but it is definitely on top in terms of publishing philosophy books." is true, even if such a person like Fouladvand claims it. There are several reasons: 1) Iranian do not publish philosophical books so much. Most books are translated. 2) All books are not translated. It is easy to see that the number of books written in other languages should be more than the number of them which are translated. 3) More than these two, there are many key philosophical books in western philosophy that has not been translated yet, or just translated very recently.

I think this statement should be removed because it is not correct. -SoloGen

Move back to Iranian philosophy[edit]

I think this article should be moved back to "Iranian Philosophy". The original move from "Iranian Philosophy" to "Philosophy in Iran" was not even discussed here. In fact, most articles of this kind bear names of the former style. Compare, for example, Indian philosophy, German philosophy, French philosophy, Russian philosophy, Danish philosophy.

I removed relational philosophy link, no offense is intended, but Mr Sepahsalar is a rather obscure personality, and should not be linked on the main page of Iranian Philosophy. Btw the effort here is rather pathetique. I might come back and do some work, in case someone wants to help out here are some headings (some from Zaehner): Ahuranic philosophies, Early Zoroastrianism, Catholic Zoroastrianism, Orthodox Zoroastrianism, Materialistic Zurvanism, Mythic Zurvanism, Manicheaism, Mazdakism,(? Mithraism - more a theosophy I think), Iranian Kalam, Iranian Peripatetic School, Sufism, Philosophy in Adab Literature, Shia Philosophies, Philosophy of illumination, Modern Philosophies.
