"I have filled a Vacuum in Philosophy that persisted over Two Thousand Years."
-Muhammad Baqir Al Sadr
The current title translated for the first time into English in the entirety shows the Author's mastery of the philosophical traditions both Western and Islamic.
Al Sadr proposes a new formulation of the theory of the human knowledge on the basis of an alternative foundation for the induction process. He introduces a new school of thought, Autogenousism, standing in contrast to both rationalism and empiricism in which induction delivers certainty as its outcome.
