The Publication of "The Spirit and the Soul" by Professor
Seyyed Mohammed Khamenei
In this book, relying on the concepts of “the sprit and
the soul” in the Qur’an and hadith, the writer inquires
into a historical conflict in this regard between
theologians and muhaddithin.
The first chapter of the book provides a short history
of the issue of the spirit and the soul in the early
days of Islam. In the next chapters, the concept of
“spirit” is analyzed in fields of philosophy, theology,
gnosis, and the Transcendent Philosophy. Finally, the
writer tries to propound the above two concepts from the
viewpoints of Shaykh Mufid, the well-known Shi’i
theologians and jurisprudent (living about 1000 years
ago) and Mulla Sadra (living about 400 years ago).
