Abstract

eyyed Hossein Nasr, an Iranian philosopher and an exponent oftraditional Islam, is considered one of the most important scholars of Islamicand religious studies in the world today. His conception of science is interestingin the sense that he strives to rejuvenate the notion of traditional scienceand scientia sacra(sacred knowledge), which lie at the heart of traditionalcivilization. He considers these two notions (traditional science and scientiasacra) as antithesis to modern science. Nasr’s elaboration of traditional scienceand scientia sacra serves as an alternative to discourses of Islamization ofscience which have been put forward by some scholars. This paper triesto examine the core ideas of Nasr’s construct of science, to highlight theirontological, epistemological, and axiological bases, and to trace the root ofNasr’s conception of science to living Islamic philosophical tradition.
