Cultural policy-making and its implementation has always been a way for political systems to transmit their ideals and wishes to social agents in the form of executive instructions (History); however, researchers have ignored scientific investigation of the executive dimensions of the effect of politics on culture. (Background) Here, analysis of the effects of Imam Khomeini's cultural policies on the basis of the methodology of Lakatos has remained unknown. (Problem) Therefore, the following questions are raised: how can the compatibility of the methodology of Lakatos on the cultural policies be shown? And of course, what is the result of this compatibility? (Question) The present article assumes that the pattern of Lakatos provides a clear answer to this question. (Hypothesis) The present paper seeks to explain the compatibility of the method of Lakatos (Methodology) and the works of Imam Khomeini (R.A.) using the pattern of Lakatos. (Objective) The finding is that: the core of Imam Khomeini's political thought has the capability of compatibility with contemporary philosophical investigations and even, the Islamic republic can be regarded as a research project that can protect itself more than ever in addition to its epistemological and metaphysical richness provided that it interacts with other theories (Finding).
