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.
