عنوان مقاله [English]
Progress means a movement from the existing situation to an overall desirable situation which covers all social dimensions of human life as a result of which the society does away with material and spiritual poverty, social maladies, injustice and lack of freedom, absence of security and welfare, and absence of independence and national dignity. Any model for progress of a country can only last in a structured manner if it has an epistemological system. Understanding the underlying epistemological system for any model is essential to formulation of that model. Basic principles and key elements of Islamic-Iranian model for national progress of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been taken from epistemological system governing such basic strategic instruments as the Constitution, 20-Year Vision Plan, and general policies of the Islamic Republic. This study reviews these instruments in a bid to discover and present basic principles and key elements of this model through a data-based qualitative theorization method.
