The paper is to show how the contemporary Shiite ulamas, arising out of Shiite seminary schools, confront with the West. Thus, academicians and scholars out of seminary schools will only be slightly touched. The ulamas discussed here are those who appeared before the Islamic Revolution and are thus considered as forerunners. As a result, I will only briefly refer to the ulamas appearing after the Revolution. Thus, the purpose of this study is a general consideration of the topic, showing the attention of ulamas to Western philosophy, depicting the geographical dimension of issue, and mentioning some samples of the discussions they had. In this way, one can find out about the types of discussions and literature they used and the position they adopted in regard with Western philosophy.
