  1. The Encounter of Zoroastrianism with Islam.Marietta Tigranovna Stepaniants - 2002 - Philosophy East and West 52 (2):159 - 172.
    The decisive victory of the Arabs over the Iranians put an end to Zoroastrian Iran and brought it into the Arab Caliphate in 651. However, the "indirect meeting" of Islam and Zoroastrianism had taken place centuries before through the impact of Zoroaster's teaching on Judaism, Christianity, and the religion of the Muslims. Although the "direct encounter" resulted in the virtual disappearance of Zoroastrianism from Iran, it nonetheless brought about a certain synthesis of the two spiritual traditions--most visible in two classical (...)

    Marietta Stepaniants' introductory text allows a distinctively Eastern way of thinking to come forth.

What is human nature? What is truth ? A fifth, unique, essay shows how Eastern thought has dealt with Western contact in the 19th and 20th centuries. Comparisons within and across traditions makeIntroduction to Eastern Thought an (...)

    The General and the Particular in Moral Philosophy (The Golden Mean Metaphor).Marietta Stepaniants - 2007 - The Proceedings of the Twenty-First World Congress of Philosophy 7:137-140.
    The golden mean metaphor is suggested as a key to understanding the universal and the particular in moral philosophy since finding metaphorical links provides a way of seeing different traditions in a manner that does not erect absolute boundaries. The choice of the golden mean is made keeping in mind that all cultures recognize the worth of moderation. The prime reason for that lies in human nature which sets human beings apart from all the other living creatures by a goal-oriented (...)

    Teaching Philosophy: Reflections on the Soviet Experience.Marietta Stepaniants - 1996 - Philosophy East and West 46 (3):381-388.
    The Soviet teaching of philosophy violated the cardinal rule that one must think for oneself. The negative aspects of the teaching of philosophy in the USSR were the consequence of the Soviet sociopolitical system and a characteristic tendency in Russian society to subordinate philosophy to pragmatism. Recently, changes in philosophy teaching are seen as a sign of liberation from pragmatic ideology and a revival of philosophy's original purpose as the quest for truth.
