This book provides a comprehensive and widely accessible analysis of Mulla Sadra's works in order to establish the nature of his political philosophy and seeks to instigate a dialogue on the relevance of Sadra's philosophy to present day challenges. Laying the groundwork for further translations and interpretation, this volume is not just concerned with 'political philosophy' as yet another particular and limited facet of Sadra's overall system. Rather, through unifying spiritual, intellectual, ethical and political aspects of this singular philosopher, The Political Philosophy of Mulla Sadra is concerned with properly contextualizing and understanding the guiding intentions and inspirations that unify and underlie all of his creative philosophical endeavor. This pioneering work of reflection on Mulla Sadra's philosophy provides a direct, accessible, and yet provocative work of genuine philosophical reflection, and is an invaluable contribution to the fields of Political Philosophy, Mysticism and the history of Islamic Philosophy.
