عنوان مقاله [English]
In order to produce religious knowledge and Islamic humanities, one is to define an apparatus of deductive cognition; one is thus able to infer descriptive data from the religious resources and to plausibly develop theories that reveal the meaningful relations among various constituents. Web paradigm is an attempt to propose a systematic postulates and method of deduction for the development of such a cognitive apparatus.
The core characteristic of such a cognitive apparatus is “the web-like feature of existence”, from which web-like ontology, web-like humanities, web-like epistemology, web-like methodology, web-like axiology, web-like society and historiology, and web-like theology might be inferred. The outcome of the modifying “web-like” is in “the requirement of distinguishing and determining the equation of going forward in the large scale of existence in the course of descriptions and prescriptions.”
This paradigm is a rival to the three ones of (positivism, interpretation, and criticism) prevailing in humanities examined comparatively in this article.
