This June, the OUP Philosophy team honours Mullā Sadrā (1571 – 1640) as their Philosopher of the Month. Mullā Sadrā was born in Shiraz, southern Iran, but moved around when he was studying and for the many pilgrimages he embarked on in in his lifetime. He later returned to Shiraz when he began teaching and taking on followers of his philosophy. He is best known for his work on Transcendent Wisdom, the philosophical school he founded, along with his work on metaphysics and proving the existence of God. Sadrā also worked in a range of other fields including epistemology, psychology, theology, and mysticism.
