We need to learn both from East and West – Ayatollah Khamenei #iran

“Behind the progress of humanities is the progress of thought and that thought comes before knowledge and experience. These are tried and true facts. This is why I am so sensitive about the issue of humanities. I never said we should not learn the knowledge of Westerners who have made a lot of progress over several centuries. I never said we should not read their books. My point is that we must not imitate them.”
