Mulla Sadra's Approach to the Synthesis of the Intellect and Revelation

The intellect and revelation are two categories that have always attracted the attention of thinkers and philosophers. Perhaps one of the most important achievements of Mulla Sadra is his synthesis of the intellect and revelation. A study of his method in accomplishing this task can serve as a luminous torch guiding many of the seekers of the truth.This paper examines two important approaches followed by Mulla Sadra in this regard: the first is clarifying the problem of esoteric interpretation and equating it with perfectional interpretation, and the second is distinguishing rational rules from estimative and imaginal ones. Both of these methods play significant roles in the structure of Sadrian philosophy and connect Sharia'h, the intellect, and gnosis
