In the theoretical studies about the government in the history of Iran, the three types of political systems, "righteous" and "devout" Kingdom, the "totalitarian" of "Oriental despotism" and "feudal" state have been studied. The first view was raised by the secretaries such as the agents of Iranian monarchy and the intellectual elite of political thought of Iranshahri. Two other views belong to the orientalism intellectual discourse. Generally, in the studies that belong to the western scholars, the government in the history of Iran has been described as an example of "oriental despotism" and "patrimonialism" on the dominant bureaucracy. While the Marxist-Leninist Scholars have defined the government in history Iran as a feudal structure and representative of feudal classes. All of the discussed views about the construction and function of government in the history of Iran are ideological and one-sided, Because all of these analytical approaches are discourses of the power. For this reason, a critical study of the intellectual field of these theoretical approaches about the understanding of the government in the history of Iran is the basic purpose of the present study.
