In this paper we sought to study the concept of tradition comparatively in the thoughts of Iranian thinkers emphasizing on the thoughts of Dariush Shaygan and Seyyed Hossein Nasr based on Bordeaux's Theory of Practice. We argue that the thoughts are formed based on habitus, and development and change in habits result in thinking changes. According to this theory, we used this tradition as a habitus which was constructed. Therefore, the differences between the thoughts of these two contemporary thinkers about tradition and also changes in thoughts of Shaygan were explained based on this theory and sought to answer this question that what was the logic of the tradition concept formation in thoughts of these two thinkers and also the similarities and differences of this concept? Therefore, their views on the two fields of tradition, modernity and anthropology were discussed.
