    Introduction:

    The importance of Transcendent Philosophy in one respect lies in its synthesis of theology, philosophy, mysticism and Islamic intellectual history, and in other respect, in the continuity of its learning and teaching in universities and religious seminaries. Therefore it is a living philosophical tradition. Based on efforts made during the last few decades, Mulla Sadras school of Transcendent Philosophy has become known internationally. Many professors and students of philosophy have varying degrees of contact with this school. The extension of comparative studies into Sadras philosophy and other schools of thought is further evidence of this phenomenon.

    Sadras Transcendent Philosophy moreover synthesizes Quran exegesis and Hadith commentary widening the scope of his school from being strictly concerned with issues in philosophy to also explore questions in religious studies, thereby providing a model for an interdisciplinary approach to Islamic Thought.

    The 3rd short-term course will tackle fundamental issues regarding the Transcendent Philosophy. The most unique characteristic of this course is that almost every attendees have one proposal of research and each of them have been linked to one of the professors and lecturers to guide them and to whom they can share their ideas and problems.
