From the Paper:

"Islam and Modernity in Iran The readings for this week were Structural Causes of the Iranian Revolution, Fundamentalism or Populism and Perceptions of Private Property, The Ideological Preconditions for Khomeini's Doctrine of Government and Iran: Change in Islam; Islam and Change. The common theme in all of these readings is fundamentalism and modernity. This means that there are number of questions relating to what fundamentalism means and what modernity means. For example, is there such a thing as modern Islam? Or does becoming modern necessarily involve following the development path of the Western world? One interesting aspect of these readings is that they have difficultly in defining fundamentalism."
