Nineteenth Edition of the Conference of Commemoration of Mulla Sadra, May 2015

Philosophy and Public Order



Today, we can hardly imagine that any human individual is even capable of staying alive outside the society. On the other hand, what guarantees the survival of each society consists of the order, laws, and principles that make human coexistence possible. In this case, no one will harm others in order to satisfy their needs and have their own benefits. Philosophers and philosophy are committed to explaining the conceptual and affirmative fundamental principles of other sciences. Therefore, they consider it necessary to study the rules, principles and the order dominating various societies as well as social opportunities and threats. Accordingly, the Sadra Islamic Philosophy Research Institute intends to hold the 19th Conference of Commemorating Mulla Sadra on the theme of “Philosophy and Public Order”.
