عنوان مقاله [English]
The main question of this article is that, what happens to religion in the contemporary market society (inspired by neoliberal thinking)? In the other words, is religion differently regulated in a neoliberal social context (the dominance of market economy)? This article is descriptive-analytic, based on documentary research. The findings of this research show in the free market system, the relationship between the religion and the state changes. Neoliberalism in Iran, by abandonment of the Social, and combining rent-seeking and market logic, has shaped an awkward economy. Supporting the market economy in a religious context has created a new bourgeoisie in Iran. In the global context too, we have encountered with global reshaping of religion by consumerism, the emergence of new religious movements, conservatism and traditionalism of the religion (instead of decaying it), undermining it’s critical role, commodification of the human, and depletion of the society from natural and human values.
