"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.

"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.

In Reimagining Sociology: Toward the Sociology of Self-Knowledge, Human Architecture, and Utopystics (Comparative Essays in Theory for a Liberating Applied Sociology), Mohammad H. Tamdgidi advances C. Wright Mills' sociological imagination by questioning the extent to which the "sociological" in his imagination was itself derived from a modern, Newtonian intellectual universe that still continues to influence the culture- and discipline-bound, Western academic definitions of society and sociology today. Tamdgidi argues that the hypnosis of such subconscious intellectual habiti as perpetuated by the outdated machinery of mainstream academic institutions hampers the full flowering of the sociological imagination. Awakening to and transcending such an intellectual trance is thereby a fundamental prerequisite for advancing liberatory social theorizing and praxis. Adopting an applied, world-historically comparative and self-reflective, approach and an accessible essayistic style, Tamdgidi investigates how the micro-macro dialectic that beats the heart of the Millsian sociological imagination can be enriched through a theoretical conversation in utopystics across diverse cultural and disciplinary intellectual traditions-one that takes seriously the dialectical simultaneity of the multiplicity of individual selves in the micro and the singularity of world-historical social structures in the macro spheres.
