A PhD student of Semnan Islamic Azad University has presented his dissertation “A Discursive Programming Model as a Methodological Model for the Theorizing of Islamic-Iranian Progress in the Thought of Ayatollah Khamenei.”

According to an ANA report, Naser Fakhari, PhD student of Semnan IAU, discussed "Islamic and Iranian Model of Progress" mentioned by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in his article.

Based on the research, the essential precondition for designing the "Islamic and Iranian Model of Progress" is the recognition of the Supreme Leader's intellectual system about it. However, previous studies have failed to provide a framework for understanding this intellectual system based on a comprehensive research program.

This article, after examining different methods, has proposed a syncretic model of the "Lakatos strategic plan" and "Discourse theory" as a methodological model for studying and organizing Ayatollah Khamenei's thought as a documentary for the design of Islamic Iranian model of progress.

Then, based on the model presented and by examining all the statements and prescriptions of the leader of the revolution from 1989 to 2017, has categorized the indices and major discourses of Islamic Iranian progress in with the appropriateness and interrelations between the three concepts of progress, Islam and Iran.

In the letter sent to all Iran's ministries, universities and research centers, Ayatollah Khamenei urged all officials, academics and experts and elites to review the draft document of the Islamic-Iranian Model of Progress and help development of the plan.

The Leader called for applying all existing capacities in the country in developing the model, saying the Islamic-Iranian model of progress should set the objectives while its strategies should be subject to modifications in the course of time, pointing to an element of flexibility within the texture of the prospective model of progress.

Touching on the four realms with which the model shall deal, Ayatollah Khamenei had also said the model of progress should drive the society towards intellectuality and help it beam with thoughts and intellect.
