عنوان مقاله [English]
There are not many precedents among the philosophers for the discussions on proving the real and objective existence of an entity called society and, consequently, the existential laws of society are poorly researched in their works. Among these laws is the question of the creation and survival of the society. Despite a paucity of philosophical investigations in this regard, some of the works of contemporary philosophers include some points about the creation and survival of communities.These points indicate the physical creation and cultural survival of communities. Before issuing a ruling about the physical creation and cultural survival of communities, the genuine existence of community should be proved based on convincing arguments. This is possible through Sadra’s principle of "unity of knowledge, knower and known". After proving the genuine existence of community, we can talk about its creation and survival based on the Islamic philosophy. Some contemporary philosophers argue that physical creation of societies means the advent of a community and its economic institutions, but this interpretation of the physical creation of communities can be refuted by philosophical and historical evidence. A correct interpretation of the physical creation of communities and their cultural survival can be presented relying on Sadra’s principle of corporeal origination of knowledge and understanding, and corporeal origination of all scientific and practical aspects of human.
