The problem of science-religion relation is considered here, considering realism and the cognitive status of religious statements and accepting the existence of common issues between science and religion.

The possibility of religious science is one of the important problems that have attracted the mind of some Muslim scholars and some devoted Muslims. Some motivation could be mentioned for bringing in this issue, like the removal of conflict...

The Role of Religion in the Human Encounter with Technology, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Taqavi, Mostafa
In this thesis, with the help of a literature review in philosophy of technology including the writings of analytical philosophers, Marcuse, Feenberg & Heidegger & with the help of a definition of Religion provided by Roy Clouser & supplementing it with the additional condition of Non-naturalism, we have tried to develop an all-inclusive theory about the implications of religious beliefs for encountering and coming to a right relation with Technology and its essence in its different layers.

Justification of religious beliefs in Pragmatic encroachment, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Taheri Khoramabadi, Ali
In epistemology, pragmatic encroachment is a theory of justification that, unlike the purist theories, emphasizes the importance of pragmatic factors in the formation of justified beliefs. This theory determines the amount of justification necessary to obtain a justified belief by considering the pragmatic consequences of a belief. In this way, this theory becomes increasingly important in religious beliefs; because (not) believing in religious beliefs will have many practical results. This thesis examines pragmatic encroachment and its effects on religious beliefs. Firstly, I will describe the theory of pragmatic encroachment and its dimensions as one of the theories of justification. Then...

Methodology of Religious ScienceWith Respect to Dr.Golshani’s Theory of Religious Scienceand Dr.Khosropanah’s Hikmai-Ejtihadi’s Pattern on Humanities, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Golshani, Mehdi ; Khosropanah, Abdolhossien
If we accept that there is a thing called “religious Science”, then we should accept that, all of its scientific elements should be based on, or be compatible with religion (in its general meaning). So, here is the question: Is there a particular “religious methodology” required for the “religious science”? Does “religious”, as an adjective also applies to methodology of science? Anyway, if we want to generate “religious science” based on religious foundations, we should characterize our position about “methodology of religious science”. Negligence of this important subject would cause a theoretical vacuum in discussions about religious science. In this thesis, after explaining some general...
Social robotics, education, and religion in the islamic world: an iranian perspective, Article Science and Engineering Ethics ; Volume 26, Issue 5 , 2020 , Pages 2709-2734 ; Taheri, A. R ; Shariati, A ; Meghdari, A ; Sharif University of Technology

The social impact of robotics applied to domains such as education, religion, nursing, and therapy across the world depends on the level of technology as well as the culture in which it is used. By studying how robots are used in Iran, a technologically-savvy country with a long history and a rich culture, we explore their possible impact on interrelated areas of religious and ethical features in education in an Islamic society. To accomplish this task, a preliminary exploratory study was conducted using two social robots as teaching assistants in Islamic religion classes for 42 elementary students. More than 90% of the participants in the study absolutely preferred the robot-assisted...
Muslim scholars and technological volition, Article Technology in Society ; Volume 61 , 2020 ; Taqavi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
Elsevier Ltd 2020
What purpose, according to Muslim scholars, should technological development serve? To answer this question, first we explain the views of seven Muslim scholars who have theorized about technology from an Islamic viewpoint. We then set out Carl Mitcham's fourfold analysis of technology, and summarize the views of philosophers of technology on technological volition. This places us in a position to classify Muslim scholars' opinions on technological development under seven broad headings, namely: meeting human beings' needs, implementation of an Islamic culture and lifestyle, serving human beings, serving nature, understanding the splendor of creation, providing personal and social happiness,...
