The „secular“ (earthen) and temporal life is meaningful

The living fire, the fire which makes up life, that was represented in the image of the goddess Artha who constituted the central deity in the ancient [pre-zoroastrian] Iranian mythology, is contained in the earthen body itself – the body that is metaphorically called “the fire oven” in the ancient myths.

In other words, the god of the ‘fire of life’, which is “defining”, being a god, is substantial within the physical “house”.

Life in time, or secular life, is the source of the very meaning that must be sought and found exactly within it.

We list translations of works by the Iranian philosopher Manuchehr Jamali, and work on building an archive of his early to present day publications and unpublished works. In the broader context we cooperatively form an institute dedicated to cultural studies and political philosophy, in which arts and practical ethics are meaningfully combined with the ideas framed by Manuchehr Jamali.
