عنوان مقاله [English]
This article is based on a syllogism which is in turn based on the following premises: First premise: knowledge corresponds with lifestyles. Second premise: language corresponds with knowledge. Conclusion: language corresponds with lifestyles. The first premise presumes that lifestyles are based on a particular epistemology. The second premise deals with the nature of relation between language and knowledge, an old topic tackled by philosophers, linguists and logicians from sophists to post-structuralists. What is the relation between language and knowledge? Are they the same or different when they are realized? If they are different from each other, which is prior to the other? The conclusion is that: firstly there are different language structures. Secondly these different language structures lead to different lifestyles. This has been realized in Western and Islamic traditions both theoretically as well as historically and socially. In order to prove his theory, the author has made use of both conceptual as well as objective structures.
