The Explanation of Mulla Sadra's Recognition Process based on The Four Journeys of Wisdom

Mulla Sadra has written his most complete and precise philosophical book based on Al-asfar Al-arba'a (The Four Journeys). "I have resembled the scientific spiritual journeying and wayfaring as well as the passage of scientific philosophical levels to the spiritual journey of the wayfarers and thus, I have named this book, The Journeys.", he says in the introduction of this book. This article claims that Mulla Sadra has explained the recognition issue based on the four journeys of mystics and the Ascending and Descending Journeys. He tries to draw a road to recognition of the world, especially recognition of the Lord and the Otherworld, by establishing his especial principles; whilst, this approach is often undermined by exponents and analysts. The inattention to this approach has resulted in conflicting interpretations of his viewpoint. This article shows that the explanation of recognition based on "Al-Asfar al-arba'a" could suggest a proper solution for some apparent contradictions especially in the field of perception and science by The Explanation of Mulla Sadra's Recognition Process based on "Al-asfār al-ʿaqlīyya al-arbaʿa".
