Mohammad H. (Behrooz) Tamdgidi, Ph.D.
Mohammad H. (a.k.a. 'Behrooz') Tamdgidi (pronounced "tamjidi"; Persian: « « ), is an Iranian-American sociologist, specializing in the sociology of self-knowledge, human architecture, and utopystics-three overlapping theoretical, methodological and applied fields of inquiry he initiated in his doctoral studies in 2002 and has since pursued. Tamdgidi's research, teaching, and publishing practices have been framed by an interest in understanding how personal self-knowledges of multiple selves and singular world-historical social structures constitute one another. This line of inquiry has itself been a result of his long-standing interest in understanding the underlying causes of failure of the world's utopian, mystical, and scientific traditions in bringing about a just global society. Tamdgidi is the founding editor of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge (ISSN: 1540-5699, 2002-), a publication of OKCIR: the Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics) which has served since 2002 to frame his independent research, pedagogical, and publishing initiatives. Tamdgidi holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in Sociology in conjunction with a graduate certificate in Middle Eastern studies from Binghamton University (SUNY). He received his B.A. in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley, following enrollment as an undergraduate student of Civil Engineering at the University of Tehran. He served as a lecturer in sociology at Binghamton University (1987-2001), as a full-time sociology faculty at SUNY-Oneonta (2001-3) and as a tenured associate professor of sociology teaching social theory at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Boston (2003-2013). In Dec. 2013 he retired early from his tenured position at UMass Boston in order to devote full-time to his independent scholarship through the conduit of his research center, OKCIR. Besides editing about 27 journal issues (as of 2013) of Human Architecture, and publications in other scholarly journals and edited books, Tamdgidi has previously authored Gurdjieff and Hypnosis: A Hermeneutic Study (Palgrave/Macmillan 2009/12) and Advancing Utopistics: The Three Component Parts and Errors of Marxism (Paradigm Publishers 2007/09). A forthcoming book will bring together important new work plus revisions of previously published material, constituting, along with the earlier two books noted above, a trilogy on utopystics whose components significantly revise and advance the findings of Tamdgidi's doctoral thesis entitled, "Mysticism and Utopia: Toward the Sociology of Self-Knowledge and Human Architecture (A Study in Marx, Gurdjieff and Mannheim)" (SUNY-Binghamton, NY, 2002). Tamdgidi's current research is also focused on a hermeneutic sociological study of Omar Khayyam's attributed rubaiyat in the context of his works, life, and time as a whole. An important applied dimension of Tamdgidi's initiatives in advancing the sociology of self-knowledge, human architecture, and utopystics has been his efforts in building alternative research center, scholarly publishing, and related professional structures. © Copyright 2002 - Present by Mohammad H.

Mohammad Tamdgidi is the Founding Director of OKCIR: The Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics). He has been an Associate Professor of Sociology teaching social theory at the University of Massachusetts Boston. "Tamdgidi does the field of Marxist critique a great service.... Tamdgidi's suggestion - that utopistics must be a creative endeavor to which all forms of knowledge and experience, Western and Eastern, scientific or otherwise, can and should critically contribute - is a major advance in the field of world-systems studies." -Peter McLaren, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles "The argument of Dr. Tamdgidi's book, that anti-utopianism in the form of radical materialism of the later Marx jeopardizes the creative dimension of dialectical thought, offers a critique and theoretical response rooted in the complex forces of the self as lived. The work is a contribution in Marxist social thought, in that it is a part of the stream that offers arguments for reconsidering the early Marx, but it is also a work in agency-oriented dialectical social thought." -Lewis R. Gordon, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Philosophy at Temple University and the Jay Newman Visiting Professor of Philosophy of Culture at Brooklyn College "All of Professor Tamdgidi's broad knowledge in world-history and East/West epistemologies are powerfully condensed in Advancing Utopistics.

Mohammad Tamdgidi is the Founding Director of OKCIR: The Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics). He has been an Associate Professor of Sociology teaching social theory at the University of Massachusetts Boston. "Tamdgidi sets a benchmark for Gurdjieff Studies in relation to two recognized but insufficiently explored areas, his writings as a unified field and his exploitation of hypnosis in its broadest sense. His compact interpretation of Gurdjieff emphasizes-for the first time-a search for meaning based on recognizable keys within about 1,800 pages of Gurdjieff's four texts as a single body of work, with particular focus on subliminal and subconscious dimensions of impact and interpretation, an approach which might be termed the 'Hermeneutics of Gurdjieff.' Thus, Tamdgidi's work is an important original contribution to the constructive, independent, and critical study of Gurdjieff's four books. "In the ocean of literature on Gurdjieff, the brilliant book of Mohammad Tamdgidi has a very special place. Copyright 2002 - Present by Mohammad H. Tamdgidi. All Rights Reserved.
