A Call to Criticize the Shi'a Political Mind: Reflections on the Idea of Spacetime and Political Relativity of the Shi's Interaction with the Political Event in KuwaitThe main aim of this study is to provide new academic knowledge and at the same time create a modern political awareness to free the mind and stereotypical behavior from the axioms and fallacious perceptions that are not valid and, actually do not exist. On the other hand, this study contributes mainly to the field of political theory, and international relations, by utilizing some specializations and scientific methods in other disciplines such as physics, anthropology, sociology, and philosophy. This critical study examines the interaction of Shi’a in Kuwait with the political event from 1896 to 2020. Furthermore, the study provides philosophical reviews of the role of reason in intellectual perceptions and practical behavior. In this context, the study reviewed the political, philosophical, and juristic ideas and perceptions of Shi’a clerics related to the role of mind. Since Kuwait was cast away from the Ottoman Empire and became an independent political entity after Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah held the power in 1896, the Shi’a involvement in internal politics was also reviewed. To arrive at a scientific analysis of the Shi’a political mind problematics in particular and the political mind in Kuwait in general, some of the scientific views, concepts, and theories of relativity and spacetime were utilized within the frameworks of philosophical and political literature. This study, likewise, investigates some of the significant historical events that were not carefully inspected before, as it should be deserved. Besides, the study determined several problems that explain the predicaments of the Shi’a political mind. Keywords: Political Mind, Theories of International Relations, Political Thought, Shia’s, Kuwait history, political Relativity, Spacetime.
