This paper reviews the civilizational ideas of Sayyed Hossein Nasr in its most general form, without considering any particular civilization. However, the paper is concerned with evaluating the possibility of referring these ideas to a central idea I call "cooriginality of religion and civilization". Determining the place of civilization in human life from Nasr's viewpoint, I introduce his general civilizational theory, that is, cooriginality of religion and civilization, and then I deal with some outcomes of this theory with respect to the meaning of presence in, and belonging to, a civilization, the force leading a civilization forwards, the way civilizations are founded and revived, the definition of civilization and its compatibility of the theory of cooriginality, the division of civilizations, and inter-civilizational relations. Moreover, some other significant aspects such as plural manifestations within a civilization are also considered. Finally, I show that while we can refer Nasr's civilizational ideas to the cooriginality claim, there are ambiguities in this claim making troubles for some outcomes and generalizations.
