Modernity and Even Development are interrelated, interdependent and interconnected. This book (in Persian language) explores the emergence of Modernity, both in the Western world as well as in the Eastern countries primarily due to the evolution of science and technology.
The book is also a comparative study of the common strategic approaches for an Even Development.
