Mind and Body in Mulla Sadra’s Philosophy: A Psychological Relationship
Mind body problem is the old philosophical debate many philosophers in all ages have engaged to solve the problem. Despite the efforts have been done by many philosophers of mind but still they are not able to provide a reasonable explanation of the problem, however, Islamic philosophers before MullaSadra also could not solve this problem. But MullaSadra introduced one new philosophical principle, such as principality of existence, intensity of being and substance in motion that succeeded to justify mind-body problem. This paper deals with the historical background of this issue and then goes through the psychological idea of MullaSadra on the relationship between mind and body.
