Some Razi’s Philosophical Concepts

One of the most important and most original Islamic philosophers, Razi, has a radical view of philosophy. His approach to philosophy is radically rational or Aristotelian, and it seems that he does not give any place to godly or divine concepts in his cosmological design. Against some concepts that have been suggested in the basic sources of Islam, like Quran and hadits, Razi offers some different concepts which he uses in a slightly different manner. So, in this paper I will try to compare and explain those concepts within the borders of Islamic and Aristotelian understanding of philosophy.
