The Interpretation of Miracles according to Mutahhari and Golshani: Comparative and Critical Notes

Bigliardi, Stefano LU (2013) In Journal of Shi'a Islamic Studies 6(3). p.261-288
Abstract
In this essay, I scrutinize the interpretation of miracles advanced by Ayatollah Motahhari (1920-1979), the well-known Shi'a scholar; and Mehdi Golshani (1939-), a physicist and philosopher of science. The essay begins with a presentation of their viewpoints on the nature of miracles in the light of the broader philosophical discourse on the nature of miracles. This is followed by a comparative analysis of their viewpoints with a consideration of relevant Qur'anic passages and their philosophical relevance. Finally, it concludes with a discussion of the challenges inherent to their interpretations.
