عنوان مقاله [English]
Islamic civilization is based on several theoretical foundations which can be described as ontological, anthropological, sociological, and epistomological. One of the most important theoretical foundations of this civilization is the epistemological one that is closely related to the type of civilization model in society. Since getting at a model of civilization is essential, understanding and explaining these foundations is also important. Accordingly, the present article tries to explain the two important foundations of rationalism and inclusiveness adopting the textual and contextual method, as an introduction to explaining the model of modern Islamic civilization. Since such an endeavour necessitates drawing on religious texts, the present paper explains the most important epistemological theoretical foundations of modern Islamic civilization with an emphasis on Usul Alkafi.
