THE PHILOSOPHY OF MULLA SADRA (Sadr al-DÄ«n al-ShirÄzÄ«) Dr. Fazlur Rahman This is one of the pioneering works on the life and works of Sadr al-DÄ«n ShirÄzÄ« (1572-1640), one of the greatest Islamic sages and philosophers, and marks the dawn of a wider perspective on Islamic philosophy; a perspective that corrects the classical view held in the West that Islamic philosophy constituted a passing phenomenon and was merely a bridge between the late antiquity and the Latin High Middle ages. It provides a scholarly and serious introduction of Mulla Sadra against the backdrop of the rich Islamic philosophic tradition; presents his essential teachings in a contemporary idiom; aims at a critical and analytical statement of his philosophy primarily conÂtained in his monumental work Al-AsfÄr al-Arbaâ€˜a and shows that Sadraâ€™s system, despite certain inner difficulties, is a highly original one revealing the extraordinary intellectual calibre of its author. The present work will further stimulate sorely needed philosophic research into this hitherto little explored but rich field of Islamic thought. In thirteen densely written chapters the books covers all the fundamental issues of Ontology, Theology, Psychology and Eschatology (Man and his Destiny) as elucidated by Mulla Sadra in his magnum opus.
