The Unity of Divine Acts in Mulla Sadra’s Philosophical System

Document Type : Research Paper



In this research, the methodology of which is descriptive-inferential, our problem is the role of the unity of divine acts in Mulla Sadra’s transcendent philosophy and the evaluation of his arguments on it. In this regard, after explaining the concept of “unity of divine acts”, we show that since the boundaries of Sadra’s philosophical system approaches speculative mysticism, Sadra’s system in solving the Unity problems transcends Avicenna’s philosophical system. Finally, we prove that the corollaries of the theory of unity of divine acts, such as the theory of union of existence, free will and divine foreknowledge, and etc., are appropriately explained by Sadra’s philosophical system.
