عنوان مقاله [English]
The non-stop scientific, cultural, and economical changes in the current world and the status and problems of education in Iran are in such way that they necessitate certain needs for innovation in education in our country. The important issue that has not been paid attention to in our country is the question “which group of experts and scientists in education and psychology and with what psychological characteristics are able to create new thoughts for educational innovation in Iran?”
Based on the philosophy of scientific transcendent wisdom and by relying on the fundamental assumption that transcendent wisdom, broad knowledge, and the researcher’s matured scientific character are the main ground-makers for scientific innovation, it has been tried in this article to state, review, and analyze the researchers’ psycho-cognitive characteristics and its indications in educational innovations. This is done with the help of a newly designed philosophy (called "scientific transcendent wisdom") as well as a designed research method of deep and all sided recognition of the central phenomena of the subject of study, which we call the “authentic creative research method". As an example in this approach, the basis for innovation in teaching healthy thinking has been offered to the students by relying on transcendent wisdom, objective knowledge (the brain physiology, psychology, and education of thinking), and matured scientific character of the researcher.
