Revelation in Mulla Sadra's View
The question of the nature of revelation in the view of various thinkers has been of special interest, and philosopher's audacity to embark on this area and delve into the various aspects of revelation meets full approval. The philosopher's embarkment on this subject is an active step towards the integration between religion and philosophy and philosophical analysis of religious teachings. Mulla Sadra considers that revelation is far too high above any sort of perception. He thinks revelation is initiated by God and it is conveyed to people by the prophet, and along with his perfectness of intellect, imagination and sensation, is chosen by God to carry out a mission and it is through the union with active intellect that the prophet attains heavenly knowledge. According to Mulla Sadra, revelation is verbal and propositional which is reduced to the existential states of the universe and prophet's psychological nature and intellectual, ideal and sensory levels. The most important finding of this article is that Mulla Sadra sees that the verbal form of revelation demands certain mechanisms. To sum up, it is possible to suppose that the positive aspects of the philosophical theory of revelation camcontribute to completing and enriching the study of revelation in the Quran especially concerning such questions like revelation's being exemplified, visual or audiable, and if not attention is given to this idea, serious prolems will remain unsolved.
