عنوان مقاله [English]
Ibn Sina has presented an original proof for the Essential unity of God which has been elaborated in his work The Directives and Remarks. He has briefly formulated the same demonstration in metaphysics of the Healing. The commentators of his work have provided various statements for the argument offering different interpretations and statements. The difference in these statements is mainly related to the assumptions and divisions in the argument under question.
Having discussed the status of Ibn Sina’s proof among other argument, the article goes on to deal with its various formulations made by Fakhr Razi, Nasir al-Din Tusi and Qutb al-Din Shirazi with conclusion that Tusi’s statement of the argument is free from objections raised against other statements and is more consistent with the word of Ibn Sina.
