A Universe in Constant Change: Mulla Sadra and Transubstantial change

A Universe in Constant Change: Mulla Sadra and Transubstantial change

Publisher: ICAS PRESS
$25.00

Mulla Sadra Shirazi (c. 1571/2 – 1640) is universally recognised as the most preeminent Muslim philosopher of the past five centuries. This book is an interpretation of one of the central themes of Mulla Sadra’s philosophy of existence, known as ‘transubstantial change’. It provides, for the first time in English, a comprehensive analysis of transubstantial change in light of Sadrian ontology and its impact on some philosophical issues such as identity, values, and truth. As the author elucidates, in transubstantial change, nothing is indestructible, and everything in the world, including substance, is in constant renewal.

Muhammad Kamal is a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne. He has written extensively on the thoughts and ideas of Hegel, Heidegger, and Mulla Sadra. He is also the author of Mulla Sadra’s Transcendent Philosophy (2006), and From Essence to Being: The Philosophy of Mulla Sadra and Martin Heidegger (2010).
