Since the formation of absolutist state by King Reza in Iran, there are so many approaches about how it has formed. There are, generally, two main approaches that stand against each other. One approach is monarchism, and its advocates, by following Marcs Weber, believe that King Reza’s absolutism state can be considered as monarchism, and choose an elitism approach. In contrast, some people insist on structural factors. In their opinion, structures play an important role in absolutism state formation and the agent (King Reza) cannot be so important. In this study, Gidenz structuration approach has been adopted that might be a medium approach; we tried to investigate the reciprocal role of structure and agent. Structuration is a method that concentrates on both the agent’s role in context, and cooperative and reciprocal transaction between structure and agent. With these considerations, the present article has been organized around two central questions: How to make and adopt an intermediate approach: and How the absolutist state was formed?
