Sadr Al-Din Shirazi And his Transcendental Theosophy This is the pioneering work not only on the life and works of Sadr al-din Shirazi, one of the greatest Islamic sages and philosophers, but also marks the dawn of a wider perspective on Islamic philosophy; a perspective that corrects and 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 and presents his essential teachings in a contemporary Idiom. This extensive work on Mulla Sadra serves to delineate the contours of this outstanding intellectual figure in relation to the vast panorama of the Islamic tradition, introduces his life, and works and analyses the most important aspects of his doctrines. In six densely written chapters the books covers the Intellectual Background, Life and Woks, The Asfar, The Sources of Mulla Sadra’s Doctrines and Ideas, the question of What is “Transcendent Theosophy”, The Metaphysics of Sadr al-din Shirazi and its Influence on Qajar Persia. The last chapter, The Quranic commentaries of Mulla Sadra, is added to this edition.
