عنوان مقاله [English]
In view of the fact that human life is based on the bulk of his practical and theoretical knowledge, it is essential to see what constitutes as bases of his epistemic system and how reliable and solid they are. Though the epistemic discussions are sporadic in the works of Mulla Sadra he has dealt with them with high degree of accuracy and intricacy, which indicates his deep thought and mindfulness of epistemological treatments. One of the most fundamental of these discussions is that of innate perceptions which constitute the basis of certainty of our acts of knowledge. Belief in and reliance on this foundation is the standard of validity and value of human perceptions. The article is intended to examine Mulla Sadra’s epistemological principles and draw attention to his treatment of foundationalism and its functions.
