عنوان مقاله [English]
Human need for the right style of life is a motivation and a necessity for explaining its knowledge components. The purpose of article is to ask what and the role of all kinds of knowledge in Allameh Jafari's theory of 'intelligible life' by descriptive-analytical study of his written works. The 'intelligible life' versus 'pure natural life' is a kind of rational life, centered on practical reason and the rejection of Western rationalism that encompassing a wide range of revelatory, mystical, philosophical, and scientific knowledge. These findings are obtained in the form of presentational or representational by means of education, imitation, or devotion. These teachings, in addition to their intrinsic value, have instrumental identity for nurturing of talents and voluntary guidance of human which will result in the attainment to the highest purpose of life, that is, participating in the wide song of the universe, and in other words, worshiping God. So 'intelligible life' depends on a whole set of divine and human knowledge of varying degrees of value, provided that stay away from epistemic and practical damages with the help of intellectual and revelation mechanisms.
