A group of university professors, intellectuals, and researchers have met with the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei in June 10, 2018.

While meeting with a group of university professors and scholars, Ayatollah Khamenei stated that "We are a country that has the most number of enemies among arrogant states and useless powers in the world now, and we have the most amount of supporters among the public in many countries," khamenei.ir reports.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution turned his attention to the University professors and scholars by stating:" Universities are very important centers for strengthening the country's wisdom. Professors play a crucial role in strengthening this wisdom.

If universities want to perform this role efficiently, they should respect certain requirements:

1. Involvement of the universities with the countries problems and important challenges

2. Cultural, ethical, and identical education of the students

3. Constant evolution and improvement in the universities."

"We must change the approach of "consuming knowledge" to an approach of "producing knowledge." Till when are we going to be consumers of others' knowledge? We are not embarrassed to learn from a knowledgeable person, but learning is different from imitating.

Why, when just the thought of Islamic human sciences is mentioned, some say this is not science?"

Ayatollah Khamenei added:" Experiemental sciences, the results of which can be tested in laboratories, are day after day revealed to be mistaken. Then, what do you expect from the humanities? How much contradiction exists in economy, philosophy, management and other sciences?"

"Knowledge is what you achieve and is produced by your thoughts," he said.

The Leader of the Revolution continued: "Just like we consume others' products, we consume others' knowledge; but it cannot last forever. Sometimes others' knowledge is not transferred appropriately, sometimes the best part is not transferred, sometimes updated or new knowledge is not provided. These things have happened during the Pahlavi regime, several times. Hence, we must produce knowledge."
