    Gacek ALB No. He made purification of the soul a necessary basis and complement of the study of Hikmat, thereby bestowing on philosophy the practice of ritual and spiritual virtues which it had lost in the period of decadence of classical civilization. Here, by resorting to the main three moral principles, he has dealt with moral and educative subjects related to scientists, and advised his contemporary philosophers. That is to say, essences are variable and are determined according to existential "intensity" to use Henry Corbin's definition.

    From this fun- damental starting point, Mulla Sadra was able to find original solu- tions to many of the logical, metaphysical and theological difficulties which he had inherited from his predecessors. According to this doctrine, though one simple reality, being comes in grades, in a similar way that sunlight and candlelight are the same reality of different grades. Adamson and R. Javad Mosleh trans.

    For Mulla Sadra, knowledge is the realization of an immaterial being which corresponds to the extra-mental reality because it is the higher grade of the latter being. The title of his magnum opus, al-Asfar, together with its main divisions is a proof to the mystical attachment as the philosophical narrative unfolds in terms of the famous four journeys of the soul, namely, the quest in search of the ultimate Truth or God and the final reunion with Him. The pivotal place of intuition in his philosophical methodology is especially reflected by the influence of Ibn Arabi d. He decided to leave Shiraz for a life of solitude and contemplation in Kahak, a quiet village near the city of Qom. The concept of knowledge has occupied a central place in the Islamic intellectual tradition.

Fakhr al-Din al-Razi d. According to Ibn Sina, bodily resurrection is a matter of faith that Muslims must believe in, but from a logical point of view, it is impossible. The book bases the evaluation of his success on the internal coherence of his ideas, their conformity to Islamic religious teachings and their impact on the Islamic thinkers after him.

He was a prominent figure in the Iranian cultural renaissance of the 17th century. Essences which are negative require some sort of reality and therefore exist. James Winstron Morris. See also The Encyclopaedia of Islam, new edition, Supplement,pp.

Mulla Sadra

This book can familiarize the readers with subtleties of Mulla Sadra's nature. Although the human soul has the potentiality of creating modes of existence also in the absence of the matter, as in the case of miracles, for the average human soul, as long as she lives in the material world, contact with matter is necessary for activating the creative process of generating mental beings.

For Mulla Sadra, though essences are not genuine in their existence, they still exist as delimitations of the Real Being that is the ground of all that exists. The faculty of sense perception is a Revelation of the soul that is unified with the perceptible forms or beings in the occasion of contact with the sensible world.

One of the most important faults he finds in philosophers such as Ibn Sina is the doctrine of the eternity of creation. His ontology was based on light as the hierarchical reality of universe with realms of existence as different ranks of it.

Historicism insists on Intellectual Intuition and Reason in the Philosophy of Mulla Sadra book separation; the search for spiritual meaning forgoes the separation Corbin,tr.

Wasserstrom, pp. He made purification of the soul a necessary basis and complement of the study of Hikmat, thereby bestowing on philosophy the practice of ritual and spiritual virtues which it had lost in the period of decadence of classical civilization.

The title of his magnum opus, al-Asfar, together with its main divisions is a proof to the mystical attachment as the philosophical narrative unfolds in terms of the famous four journeys of the soul, namely, the quest in search of the ultimate Truth or God and the final reunion with Him.

As Existence cannot be negated, it is self-evident that it Existence is God. The French index records extensive refs. In this book, Mulla Sadra masterfully analyses the creed of false mystics and those groups of philosophers whom he named as disgraceful impious sophists.

Those who lived in this world dominated by their animal qualities will go to the Imaginal World and experience it in the form of an animal. This was an ingenious solution to a question that had haunted Islamic philosophy for almost one thousand years: How is God able to judge sin without knowing sin?

In Arabicthe word "asfar" means "journey". It is a long period, but it is not absolutely eternal. On this ground, the real horse can give you a ride while the universal horse in the mind is incapable of that because real particularity, external properties and real effects are owing to being and cannot be in the mind.
