Iran Leader stresses importance of promulgation of philosophy

Tehran, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution underlined the importance of spreading philosophy and rational sciences in Tehran and Qom seminaries.

Omission of philosophy from Qom Seminary curriculum will cause some superficial individuals to teach the subject, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said in a meeting with officials in charge of holding the ceremony in commemoration of Hakim Aqa Ali Modarres Zonouzi.
