Abstract:   (228 Views)

One of the issues that have been disputed during recent decades includes discursive clashes and disputes over the culture of happiness in Iran and its controversial connections to formal culture and system of norms. To response to this question from anthropological standpoint, firstly cultural resources of happiness should be recognized in Iran. Then the relationship between culture of happiness -as a phenomenon closer to emotional pole- with the normative pole of the society should be examined and its forms including polyphony, liminality and dialogic are to be described. As such, the key features of Iranchr('39')s happiness culture such as polyphonic, diversity and dialogical attributes should be discussed more. This approach will come to help us to define and determine how happiness culture in Iran comes to view as a polyphonic form tied to cultural diversity. To reduce discursive clashes, this should be known as one of those important steps that will be taken toward cultural polices in Iran.
