This research aimed at studying Nasiri’s attitudes, as the proxy of ideological traditionalism, towards the modern development paradigm and its consequences for development plans and cultural policy. Thus, this research was performed through Case Study method tries answering this question: what is the most important ideological traditionalism basics related to the modern development and what consequences will be resulted from this approach for the development plan and cultural policy? The approach of ideological traditionalists has been represented based on the generally negating the modern development,Rejection of newly emergent, epistemic controversy with development,citing restrain and defending traditional and Islamic values. In this course, neither the western style development nor the Islamic style development has followers because as the traditional views of this mainstream proxy imply the nature of development is western which is in contradictory with Islamic logic. These viewpoints invoke the passive position where a future must be expected reconstruction of which is based on the returning to the tradition.
