عنوان مقاله [English]
Distribution and concentration of power are among theoretical and practical concepts with a long history in the Greek and Western intellectual sphere, both with their own particular principles and presumptions. How to implement the power and also its structure from the viewpoints of the contemporary jurisprudents are the issues with great importance. Some discussions have been raised so far in this regard, of which, Seyed Sadegh Haghighat’s book, Power Distribution in the Shi’a Political Thought is an example. The main question here is that in the views the contemporary jurisprudents, how the structure of power is recognized in terms of distribution and concentration? According to this viewpoint, neither the distribution nor the concentration of power has an inherent and substantive value and the both are defined in relation to temporal and spatial necessities. This article tries to prove the same viewpoint and in doing so, uses a critical and analytical method. Proving the proposition that from the viewpoint of the contemporary Islamic jurisprudents the philosophy of distribution and concentration of power is substantively different from what is recognized in the west, is the main achievement of this article.
