About the Book

The foundation of Mulla Sadra’s theory is “the corporeality of contingency and the spirituality of subsistence in relation to the soul.” The foundation of Descartes’ theory is “the real distinction between the substance of the soul and the body.” Mulla Sadra’s theory includes a philosophical proof for physical resurrection, whereas Descartes’ dualism led to the collapse of his philosophical system. This book is one of the best books in the English language on Mulla Sadra’s philosophy and is useful for university students in the field of Islamic studies and Islamic philosophy.
