His penetrating deliberations on the human state and spiritual anthropology provide one of the most profound statements of theunderlying unity between humans, the universe and the Divine. The book takes the reader through the elaborate and rich world of Sadra's intellectual journey and shows its relevance for today's philosophical issues in the Islamic and Western worlds.
