Theorization in sociological literature in general and in sociology of the family in particular suffers from conceptual confusion. The proposer of the concept: “Iranian Tripod System” tries to analyze the family situation and its changes in Iran through modernity. The present paper studies the conceptual framework of Iranian Tripod System and its related quadrilateral concepts: “Iranian Society”, “Iranian Family”, “Iranian Woman”, and “Specific Iranian Feminism” with a detailed oriented view to the culture, which suffers from conceptual shortcomings and analytical discontinuity in explaining the situation of the family and the relationship between the government and religion. Conceptual shortcomings of this view are mostly proposed as questions which are mainly left unanswered by the writer or formed inconsistently. In general it seems that the conceptual and theoretical frameworks of the view which are sometimes used in course books of sociology and women’s and family studies need to be reviewed and coordinated.
